Rep. Sires Declares Victory in Democratic Primary
WEST NEW YORK, NJ — Congressman Albio Sires (D-Hudson) is declaring victory in the Democratic Primary election in the 8th Congressional District, with election results showing him in a commanding lead over his two challengers. Rep. Sires is releasing the following statement:
“I would like to thank Democrats from across Hudson, Essex, Union and Bergen counties for their support in this unprecedented election. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to serve the people of the 8th District. I pledge to keep fighting for the values we all share, like expanding affordable health care coverage, reforming our broken immigration system, taking on the NRA and always standing up for our working families.
I am grateful to my many supporters in this election who I am proud to work with every day on important issues for our state, from Governor Murphy, Senator Menendez and Senator Booker, to all of the elected officials and Democratic leaders from throughout the district who worked together as a team to achieve this tremendous victory, to the many outstanding labor unions and advocacy groups who stood with me. Now, it’s time for all Democrats to come together to re-elect Senator Booker and restore true leadership to the White House by electing Joe Biden as our next President.”
