NJ7 Forward Endorses Tom Malinowski for Congress in NJ-7

Tom Malinowski will be a powerful advocate for our district and our values in Congress.

WESTFIELD, New Jersey—Today, NJ7 Forward announces its endorsement of Tom Malinowski in the NJ-7 congressional race.

Tom Malinowski will be a powerful advocate for our district in Congress and will work to uphold the American values that are under attack by the current administration. He will be a strong voice for universal health care, a permanent solution for Dreamers, protections for the environment, the continued advancement of women’s rights, investments in infrastructure and funding the Gateway tunnel and the adoption of stronger gun safety policies.

With his experience in public service as an Assistant Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, he will hit the ground running in Washington, D.C., to protect the democratic institutions that keep us free and hold our leaders accountable when we need it most.

It is time for a change in New Jersey’s 7th congressional district. Leonard Lance’s votes throughout his time in Washington, D.C., have not been in the best interest of his constituents. Lance and his party have failed to make health care more affordable with Lance himself voting over 39 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, have failed to pass immigration reform and have failed to adopt any gun safety measures.

In this term alone, Lance has voted to allow coal companies to dump waste in our rivers and oil companies to pollute our atmosphere, has signed a letter supporting the repeal of net neutrality, voted to take away consumers’ rights to sue banks and credit cards in class-action lawsuits and has voted to undermine the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference into our elections. His voting record does not fit his district.
