JERSEY CITY, N.J. — The Hudson County Democratic Organization is announcing its endorsements for U.S. Senate, House of Representatives and Freeholder in the June Primary Election. The diverse, experienced group of men and women is a reflection of the people of Hudson County, and each candidate has proven themselves as dedicated public servants who will work hard for local residents.
“With the Trump administration rejecting our values and attacking many of the communities who make up our Hudson County family, it’s more important now than ever for us to have strong leaders fighting for us right here in our own backyard,” said Hudson County Democratic Organization Chairwoman Amy DeGise. “This year we are elevating more women into leadership roles on our Freeholder Board than there have been in decades, while continuing to embrace the diversity that makes Hudson County so strong and vibrant. I was elected Chairwoman by our county committee members and supported by Democratic leaders to represent the core values of our party, and I’m certain that this ticket lives up to that promise and will help in our mission to represent the people of Hudson County.”
The HCDO is endorsing U.S. Senator Cory Booker, U.S. Representative Albio Sires, U.S. Representative Donald Payne, Jr. and U.S. Representative Bill Pascrell.
“I’m honored to run for re-election with the support of the Hudson County Democratic Organization and alongside an outstanding Democratic ticket who is ready to stand up and fight for this great county,” said Senator Booker. “I thank Chairwoman DeGise for her support and look forward to working with her and Democratic leaders throughout Hudson County to bring people together and deliver real results for New Jerseyans.”
