Rob Menendez fundraiser last night nets $200k

By David Wildstein, March 25 2022 3:34 pm

Robert J. Menendez raised over $200,000 last night at a fundraiser at the Hudson House in Jersey City in support of his bid for the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 8th district.

The event was headlined by U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Gov. Phil Murphy, and the candidate’s father, U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Menendez.

Menendez is the front-runner to succeed Rep. Albio Sires (D-West New York), who is not seeking re-election to the House seat he’s held since 2006.

It’s not immediately clear how much Menendez has raised for his congressional bid.  The first quarter of 2022 ends on March 31 and reports are due on April 15.

A commissioner of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, Menendez has the backing of the Hudson, Essex and Union county Democratic organization.
