Senator Cory Booker endorses Sue Altman for Congress

 

 

Lambertville, NJ — Today, U.S. Senator Cory Booker announced his endorsement of the presumptive Democratic nominee for New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District, Sue Altman.

 

The announcement comes after the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee added Sue to its coveted Red to Blue program — an early stamp of approval which shows NJ-07 is one of the top pick-up opportunities for Democrats to flip the House.

 

In his endorsement, Booker highlighted the longstanding partnership he has forged with Sue on an array of issues important to New Jersey families.

 

“I’m proud to endorse my friend Sue Altman,” Booker said. “I’ve long respected her tenacity in fighting for New Jersey values and families. I look forward to continuing to fight with Sue to turn NJ-07 blue and regain the House majority.”

 

“Senator Cory Booker is truly one of a kind in New Jersey politics, and it is an absolute honor to accept his endorsement. In order to flip the House, we need all hands on deck, and I will gladly work alongside the Senator in that effort. Senator Booker has long worked hard to protect democracy, preserve a woman’s right to choose, and bring sanity and statesmanship back to politics,” Sue said. “I’m proud of the broad coalition we’re building and will bring this same passion to our campaign to represent New Jersey values in Congress.”

 

Booker’s endorsement follows the endorsement of five members of New Jersey’s Congressional delegation, who have thrown their support behind Sue’s campaign as she prepares to challenge extremist-enabling incumbent Tom Kean, Jr. this November.

Meet Sue Altman:

 

Sue Altman is a proud daughter of New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District. She grew up on Center Street in Clinton, attended Clinton Public School and Voorhees High School, and calls Hunterdon County her home today, living in Lambertville.

 

After leading her Voorhees High School basketball team to local championships, Sue played college basketball at Columbia University and professional basketball abroad, earned two graduate degrees from Oxford University in the UK – one in International Policy and the other in Business, then went on to become a teacher and successful basketball coach, leading two teams to state championships.

 

During her time as a teacher, Sue became deeply involved in the fight for New Jersey’s schools and students. She stood up to then-Governor Chris Christie in order to protect teachers and fight against cuts to public schools.

 

For the last several years, Sue has served as Executive Director of the New Jersey Working Families Alliance, a non-profit organization focused primarily on combating political corruption in Trenton. Sue fought fearlessly against corrupt actors in both parties and the waste of taxpayer dollars.

 

Over her career, Sue has fought tirelessly for the people of New Jersey. She won’t stop when she gets to Washington.
