“Every primary voter I’ve talked with wants Rob Menendez and Andy Kim – dedicated public servants who will fight tirelessly for the people of Hoboken and New Jersey. Their proven leadership as Congressmen and their commitment to delivering results make them the best choice to represent Hoboken in the House and the Senate,” Fisher said in a statement.

Fisher is the third Hoboken council member to endorse in the congressional contest, with 4th Ward Councilman Ruben Ramos supporting Menendez and Councilman-at-Large Joe Quintero endorsing Mayor Ravi Bhalla.

“Endorsing Rob for re-election is an easy decision for me. Since our first meeting two years ago, I have been consistently impressed by his expertise and relentless advocacy on crucial issues like affordability, healthcare, reproductive freedom, and homelessness,” Fisher continued.

“Rob’s unwavering commitment to democratic values, serving constituents, and securing federal resources for our district is commendable. What sets Rob apart is his accessibility and willingness to engage in open dialogue, always seeking ways to help residents of Hoboken.”

She is also the first to get involved with the U.S. Senate race in the wake of First Lady Tammy Murphy dropping out on Sunday.

“I have supported Congressman Kim since he first ran for Congress in 2018 when he beat a two-term congressman in New Jersey’s 3rd District and I am proud to have this support continue as he runs for Senate to represent all of New Jersey. As our democracy comes under assault, Andy’s is a critical voice in America,” the councilwoman added.

“Andy is the right candidate to capture the hearts of New Jersey and win in November. He forges genuine connections with constituents, ensuring they feel listened to and valued. I wholeheartedly support his campaign to be our next U.S. senator.”

With Murphy’s exit from the race, Kim is expected to defeat Dr. Patricia Campos-Medina and Larry Hamm in a blowout.

In the race for the 8th District congressional seat, which also features Kyle Jasey, the son of longtime former Essex County Assemblywoman Mila Jasey, Fisher is one of Bhalla’s most consistent critics, so neither of her endorsements are particularly shocking.

The primary election is on June 4th.

  1. While “the line” does need to go away, for now it is relevant only to the extent the public allows it to be. Sifting through all the nastiness and misinformation, it becomes clear that Menendez Jr and Kim are the most qualified candidates in their respective races; experienced, honorable and committed to serving the public, not the next news cycle.
