Congressman Andy Kim Receives Major ‘Gen Z’ Endorsements from both The College Democrats of America and The College Democrats of New Jersey in His Race for U.S. Senate

MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim has announced the endorsement of both the College Democrats of America (CDA) which is the official national collegiate arm of the DNC, and the College Democrats of New Jersey, the New Jersey state chapter of the CDA. The CDA represents thousands of college students across the United States and territories and aims to organize on college campuses across America to get Democrats elected in local, state, and federal elections. CDA and CDNJ will work hard to mobilize college voters and energize the youth vote across New Jersey to get Congressman Kim elected to the Senate.

“As I travel across the state, I am seeing real hunger for a new and younger generation of leadership to step up and fix the broken politics we face. College students across our state are ready to fight for a better future, and I’m proud to have them by my side as we work to restore integrity and tackle issues that matter to them like climate change, skyrocketing education costs, and political corruption,” said Congressman Andy Kim.

“Congressman Andy Kim, embodying the progressive values we champion at College Democrats of America and having a proven track record of steadfastly fighting for New Jerseyans, stands as the unequivocal choice for College Democrats in New Jersey’s Senate race,” said Sohali Vaddula, spokesperson for College Democrats of America.

“Congressman Kim’s record speaks for itself,” said CDNJ President Madison Verdone. “He has worked tirelessly in Congress for New Jersey families, business owners, veterans, and young people. College students in New Jersey are excited to campaign and vote for a candidate who runs a grassroots campaign and listens to the needs of everyday New Jerseyans.”

“Congressman Kim will restore integrity to the United States Senate,” said CDNJ Vice President Nate Howard. “He has been a strong supporter of President Biden’s domestic agenda that would address the climate crisis, improve college affordability, expand access to health care, and protect the right to abortion. We need a battle- tested candidate who has won multiple times in a Trump district to lead our ticket to victory in competitive House races and to finish the job.”

First elected to Congress in 2018 at the age of 36, three-term Congressman Andy Kim is one of the younger members to serve in Congress and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. If elected to the Senate, Andy would be the 4th youngest Senator and the first Asian American elected to the Senate from the entire east coast of America. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, and in 2022 Kim defeated his third self-funding millionaire opponent by 12 points.

In his three terms in Congress, Andy has worked hard to lower costs for New Jersey families and help support small businesses through challenging times. Andy has also been a leading champion in fighting against corruption in our broken politics.
