United Auto Workers back Gottheimer

By Nikita Biryukov, October 31 2020 5:00 pm

The United Auto Workers backed Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff) for re-election Saturday.

“In Congress, Josh Gottheimer has been a strong voice for labor, working across the aisle to get things done. When COVID hit, he fought to get critical PPP loans for businesses, allowing millions to keep their jobs. We are proud to endorse him for another term in Congress,” UAW Region 9 director Jeffrey Binz said.

Gottheimer faces a challenge from former investment banker Frank Pallotta for a third term in the House. He won his seat in 2016 after ousting Rep. Scott Garrett (R-Wantage)

The New Jersey Globe rates the race as likely Democratic.

“The hardworking men and women of labor, including members of UAW, are the backbone of our economy and I am honored to have their support. I will keep fighting in Congress to protect our workers,” Gottheimer said.
