Progressive Democrat Ricardo Rojas of Union City Seeks Congressional Seat Against Opponent With Household Name

With Congressman Albio Sires retiring at the end of 2022, Union City Progressive Democrat Ricardo Rojas is seeking the nomination in the 8th District in the upcoming June Primary against the son of New Jersey’s longtime, United States Senator.

Rojas spoke with Hudson TV reporter Jeff Henig about his candidacy, including the need for better transportation, affordable rental and homeownership opportunities, Medicare for all and how he will approach the campaign so his message clearly distinguishes himself from Hudson County Democratic Organization candidate Rob Menendez, Jr.
