The Star-Ledger has endorsed Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) for re-election in New Jersey’s 5th district.
“Even Congress has a silver lining, and that is Josh Gottheimer,” the editorial board wrote. “He’s the smart, upbeat centrist who replaced Scott Garrett, the dour ideologue who clung to this seat for more than a decade.”
The newspaper also doesn’t care for the Republican nominee, former Cresskill councilman John McCann, who is “staking his campaign on race-baiting scare tactics, because he is so clearly unqualified for Congress. He is also a petty man, like Garrett.”
