In times of challenge, leaders show who they really are. The results speak for themselves: Josh Gottheimer is the leader North Jersey needs.

Since taking office nearly four years ago, Gottheimer has fought tirelessly on the issues that matter. As one of the most pro-Israel members of Congress, he has led the charge to support the critical relationship between the United States and Israel, including working to increase funding for Israel’s safety and security and combating the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Just last month he introduced a bipartisan resolution to condemn the Palestinian Authority’s so-called “martyr payments” to terrorists and their families.

Gottheimer has worked relentlessly for our veterans and to protect our nursing homes. He has been tireless in fighting to lower our taxes, and he has clawed back millions of federal tax dollars for our district. Over the past seven months, as our country has wrestled with the COVID pandemic, he fought to get critical PPE for doctors, nurses and frontline workers and create public-private partnerships for small businesses trying to stay afloat. While Americans are struggling and too many are playing political games, Gottheimer has worked across the aisle to get things done for us.

In politics that’s too often nasty, and as the world faces a deadly pandemic, Josh Gottheimer has shown himself to be a capable, caring and empathetic leader. He has earned our votes—and then some.

I am proud to support Josh Gottheimer for Congress.
