Lautenberg Family Endorses Pallone In Special Senate Election

The family of Frank Lautenberg has endorsed Frank Pallone in New Jersey’s special election to fill late United States Senator’s seat in Washington D.C..

In a statement posted on the Pallone campaign website from Lautenberg’s widow and his four children,  the family praises “most of the candidates in the Democratic field” as being “ hardworking, progressive leaders who care deeply about New Jersey.” However, they believe that the Sixth Congressional District representative is the best to  “continue Frank Lautenberg’s progressive leadership in the U.S. Senate.”

 

 

Frank Pallone, like Frank Lautenberg, has always looked out for working families in New Jersey and made them his top priority – in fighting for economic justice, healthcare reform, environmental protection, education and so many other issues.  Frank Pallone, like our Frank, will put in the hours and hard work necessary to fight for New Jersey in the Senate.

 

 

In what could be interpreted as a slam at Cory Booker, the front runner on the Democrat side, the family states, “Frank Pallone knows that gimmicks and celebrity status won’t get you very far in the real battles that Democrats face in the future.” Lautenberg and his staff made comments critical of Booker prior to Lautenberg’s death when he declared his intention to run for his seat in 2016.

 

12th district Congressman Rush Holt and New Jersey Assembly speaker Sheila Oliver will also be on the August 16 primary ballot.
