Rep. Kim has Earned the Support of Both the Local and NJ State Chapters

MOORESTOWN N.J. – Today, Congressman Andy Kim announced the endorsement from Communications Workers of America (CWA), in his bid for U.S. Senate. CWA represents 145,000 workers in 200 local unions in the Northeast, including 70,000 working families in New Jersey. CWA fights on behalf of its members who work in telecommunications, health care, higher education, manufacturing, broadcast and cable television, and commercial printing and newspapers, amongst others.

“CWA does incredible work advocating for workers to earn a fair wage and have a seat at the bargaining table, and I’ve worked hard in Congress to partner with them to deliver,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “I’m excited to once again stand with CWA as we look forward to bringing the fight for working families from the House to the Senate.”

“CWA District 1 is proud to stand with Andy Kim, because Andy has always stood with working people,” said Dennis Trainor, Vice President for CWA District 1. “He’s devoted his career to making New Jersey even stronger for working families, from fighting for our collective bargaining rights and union protections to lowering prescription drug costs and healthcare premiums to making our workplaces safer. In his time in the House of Representatives, Andy has proven himself to be a true champion of working families and a strong representative of New Jersey, and he’s the leader we need now in the Senate!”

“When we endorsed Andy Kim for Congress in his first bid for office, it was because we believed Andy would always put people first as a courageous leader who shares our priorities and values,” said Fran Ehret, CWA NJ State Director. “Over the past several years, Andy has more than lived up to that promise – to both our union and working families throughout the state. He’s been a leading champion in the fight against corruption and is someone we can be proud of representing everyone who lives and works here in the Garden State.”

Congressman Andy Kim is a three-term Member of Congress first elected in 2018 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, 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.
