Jones and DiVincenzo Back Menendez’s 2018 Reelection

On the ballot next year, Essex County Executive Joe DiVincenzo this evening asserted his commitment to the reelection of U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), who today exulted in Judge William Walls’ declaration of a mistrial.

Jones had already told InsiderNJ that he supports Menendez running again, as does Governor-elect Phil Murphy.

DiVincenzo’s and Jones’ full quotes of support for the senior senator appear below:

“Robert Menendez has been an outstanding public servant for his entire career – he has been a leader on all levels of government, and continues that legacy of hard work and commitment to his constituents in the United States Senate. Essex County and our residents need Senator Menendez back in Washington, DC, fighting for what is important to us.  He will have the full support and backing of the Essex County Democratic Committee.” – Jones
“I have known Senator Menendez for over 30 years and I commend the leadership he has provided to Essex County, the State of New Jersey and for our country. Especially now, with the impending tax bill that would be harmful to New Jersey, the threat of abolishing Obamacare and the volatile state of international relations, we need Robert Menendez representing us. As I seek my own re-election in 2018, I cannot think of anyone better to lead our ticket in Essex County than Senator Menendez – I would be honored to once again be his running mate.” – DiVincenzo
“I look forward to the 2018 election with Bob at the top of a strong ticket that includes our County Executive DiVincenzo, and a host of local leaders,” Jones said. “Essex Democrats, our 26 committee chairs and 1,200 district leaders are ready to campaign for Senator Menendez and provide our entire slate with a huge victory,” he added.
Essex County has been the highest performing Democratic County in the State of New Jersey. Just last week, Essex County produced the largest plurality in the state, providing Governor-Elect Phil Murphy with a 92,000-vote victory.
