Congressman Andy Kim Receives Backing from Powerhouse Activist Group “Indivisible”, Securing Endorsements from Both New Jersey and National Chapters in His Race for U.S. Senate

MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim has announced the endorsements of Indivisible Action and Indivisible One New Jersey in his bid to become the next Senator from New Jersey. These groups, formed in the wake of the 2016 Trump victory, are comprised of more than one million members across the country. Since its inception, “Indivisible” has successfully built up its grassroots organizing efforts, taking action against the GOP agenda, electing local champions, and building a coalition of local communities defending progressive ideals in the process. One of the strongest showings for a primary candidate ever, Congressman Kim received over 97% support from the New Jersey chapter.

“The Indivisible movement changed the landscape of American politics and empowered and motivated hundreds of thousands of Americans to stand up to protect their democracy. They became a grassroots engine that stood up against Trump, and now these battle-tested Americans are joining me to fight once again. This time we fight to restore integrity into our politics and work to reform the Democratic Party in New Jersey to stop corruption,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “Together we will not just build an amazing campaign, but a movement to heal our state and our nation by ensuring that regular people, not party elites, are in the driver’s seat of our democracy.”

“Indivisible is beyond proud to stand behind Andy Kim, and join with the many local leaders up and down the state of New Jersey who are excited to carry him into office,” said Ezra Levin, co-founder and co-executive director of Indivisible. “Andy Kim is the pro-democracy candidate in New Jersey. His commitment to ending the filibuster and getting things done in the Senate -- they’re exactly what we need more of in Washington. His record shows that he not only leads with integrity and humility, but also with grit and the energy needed to push back against MAGA extremists in the Senate.”

“Throughout his career, Andy Kim has shown an unwavering commitment to the people of New Jersey. From championing climate policy and affordable healthcare in Congress, to protecting our national security as an advisor to our country’s leaders, Andy Kim has consistently been a principled public servant whose actions and values are aligned with voters across New Jersey,” said Dani Negrete, National Political Director of Indivisible. “When Andy Kim goes to the Senate, he will bring a wealth of experience and use it to serve all New Jerseyans—not foreign governments, wealthy donors, or party bosses. We believe that Andy Kim, alongside Senator Cory Booker, will deliver the kind of representation and leadership in Washington that New Jerseyans have always deserved in the Senate. "

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. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, going on to vote to impeach Trump twice throughout his presidency. 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.
