Kennedy helping Kim raise money

By David Wildstein, May 31 2019 11:27 am

Rep. Joseph Kennedy III (D-Massachusetts) is raising money to help Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) win re-election to a second term.

“Since coming to Congress, Andy has been laser-focused on protecting and improving our health care system – working across the aisle to lower drug costs, reduce insurance premiums, and expand access for our veterans,” Kennedy wrote in an online fundraising appeal.  “I need Andy working alongside me in Congress – not just to protect our health care, but to take on all the big challenges the next generation will face.”

Kennedy, 38, is the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy.  He won an open Boston area House seat in 2012 when Bayonne native Barney Frank retired.  He is the fourth generation of the Kennedy family to represent the Boston suburbs in Congress.

Kim is a former Obama White House staffer who upset two-term Rep. Tom MacArthur in New Jersey’s 3rd district last year.

“Like me, Andy is a father of young kids. He understands that our kids’ future relies on today’s leaders working together to solve big problems,” Kennedy said.  But while he’s hard at work, national Republicans have targeted him for defeat.”

A fundraising appeal from Joe Kennedy III on behalf of Andy Kim included photos of the two young congressmen with their children.
