Senate President Dick Codey and U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez were not present for Frank Lautenberg’s official campaign kickoff today, but made sure to voice their continued support for him.
Codey said that Lautenberg “has the experience to rise above partisan politics and focus on what's best for New Jersey – strengthening our security, improving our health care system and protecting our environment. No one fought harder than Frank to defeat the Bush administration's senseless attempts to deprive New Jersey of well-deserved homeland security dollars and sell our ports to foreign interests.”
Menendez ticked off a number of Lautenberg’s recent legislative achiveements, like repaying military families for buying their own body armor and increasing the federal investment in Amtrak.
“This record of progress and these challenges we face are why re-electing Senator Lautenberg is so important. As such, I am excited and eager to get to work for the Lautenberg campaign,” he said.
