U.S. Senator Bob Menendez has endorsed Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) for re-election in New Jersey’s 5th district.

“Josh Gottheimer is a tireless fighter and problem-solver for the people and values of North Jersey. I need his continued partnership and we need his continued voice and vote in the House of Representatives,” said Menendez. “A friend and ally for the Latino community and other communities of color, please vote for Josh, because it’s never mattered more.”

Gottheimer has also won the backing of Gov. Phil Murphy, U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Democratic Conference Chairman Hakeem Jeffries.

Glen Rock Councilwoman Arati Kreibich, who is challenging Gottheimer in the July 7 Democratic primary, has won endorsements from Bernie Sanders and Ayanna Pressley.

The two-term Bergen County Democrat also heaped praise on Menendez.

“New Jersey is incredibly fortunate to have Bob Menendez in the Senate fighting for them day in and day out,” said Gottheimer. “He’s a real champion for our families and I’m honored and grateful to have his support.”
