By David Wildstein, May 07 2018 8:30 am

Progressive Democrats of America, a grassroots group formed out of the Howard Dean and Dennis Kucinich campaigns, has endorsed Peter Jacob for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th district.

“It is truly an honor to receive the endorsement of Progressive Democrats of America, an organization that has been working hard since 2004 to transform our party and our nation according to principles of accountability, human dignity, peace, justice, and ecological stewardship,” said Jacob, ran against Rep. Leonard Lance (R-Clinton) in 2016.

Jacob faces an uphill battle for the nomination against former Assistant U.S. Secretary of State Tom Malinowski, who has the organization lines in all six counties, and attorney Goutam Jois, who has raised considerably more money this cycle.
