Democratic Senate candidate Rob Andrews today picked up the support of Perth Amboy Mayor-elect Wilda Diaz.
Two weeks ago, Diaz stunningly upset incumbent Mayor Joseph Vas, who has held the seat since 1990 and is also an Assemblyman. She likened the Andrews campaign to her own.
“Congressman Andrews represents change at a time when too many elected officials have forgotten why they were chosen in the first place,” she said. “Earlier this month, Perth Amboy sent a clear message that it’s time for change, it’s time for new ideas and it’s time for leadership based on more than incumbency or complacency. Rob Andrews will bring the same necessary energy and change to the Senate as our candidacy brought to Perth Amboy.”
Diaz’s three running mates, who also swept into the city council, also endorsed Andrews.
