The New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association endorsed Rep. Bill Pascrell Tuesday.

“Congressman Bill Pascrell has never once wavered in his support of America’s first responders,” NJ FMBA President Eddie Donnelly said. “Whether it’s fighting for resources we need for training, equipment, manpower, and more; or fighting to ensure that those who responded to 9-11 continue to get the health care they deserve; Bill Pascrell has always had our backs. We will always have his.”

Pascrell serves as co-chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus.

The 12-term congressman faces primary two primary challenges from the left.

Zina Spezakis, a clean energy investor, and attorney Alpaslan Basaran are both seeking Pascrell’s seat.

“Firefighters put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. It has been my mission in Congress to provide them with the federal support they both need and deserve, and I am proud to receive their endorsement of my efforts today,” Pascrell said. “America’s first responders are heroes here in North Jersey and throughout the United States. Just as they never stop fighting for us, I will never stop fighting for them.”
