Join Team Andy

New Jersey is my home, and now I’m raising my two troublemaking little boys just down the road from where I grew up. I’m fighting for my family, for my neighbors, for the community that raised me, and for working families in pursuit of the American Dream.

My Story

The decision to run against Senator Menendez was one of the biggest and toughest decisions of my life. The reason I stepped up is that I’m tired of constantly watching our politics fail our nation. We are just cycling from crisis to crisis, and politicians aren’t focused on what the American people need help with.

Right now, a staggering 84 percent of people in New Jersey believe NJ politicians are corrupt. When I read the indictment of Senator Menendez, I was stunned and felt strongly that the people of New Jersey deserve a choice for what kind of public servant they have in the Senate.

Instead of throwing up my hands and giving up, I am stepping up to show that there is a better way. We deserve leaders that can serve with integrity. Leaders who are work horses not show horses. After this scandal, we need a fresh new start — a chance to lift up a new generation of leadership that can bring a new voice and deep public service experience to the U.S. Senate.

My parents taught me that service isn’t just a job, it’s a way of life. Being trusted as an elected official is an honor – an opportunity to serve our community, not a license to line your pockets for political favors. I’ve made ending government corruption a core value of my work in Congress.

Ending Corruption

Whether you voted for me or not, you're my boss, I answer to you. I believe that we all need to work together, regardless of party, to get things done for the people we represent. Every day, I am keeping my promise to put people before partisan politics and to treat everyone with respect and civility.

People Over Politics

When I worked in the Situation Room or as a civilian advisor in Afghanistan to four-star generals, no one asked me if I was a Democrat or Republican. I served my country. In Congress, I’ve never lost sight of who I’m serving, and I’m always looking for ways I can contribute to make America work for everyone.

My Promise

When I was in elementary school, my mother took me to Washington, D.C. so I could understand why she had chosen to leave South Korea and create a new life in this country. On that trip, she said something I’d never forget: when a country gives you so many opportunities, you need to give back. Now I see success in this job as delivering for you and your family and the country that has given me and my family so much.
