Sheila Oliver endorses Andrews

Rob Andrews today picked up the support of Assemblywoman Sheila Oliver (D-East Orange) for his Senate campaign.

Oliver, who represents parts of Essex and Passaic Counties, is one of a handful of northern legislators who have jumped on with Andrews since he decided to primary incumbent Frank Lautenberg last month.

Andrews is also backed by a few members of the Newark City Council, although Newark Mayor Cory Booker supports Lautenberg.

“It’s time to elect someone with a new, fresh approach to the problems of the people of Essex County and New Jersey,” Oliver said Oliver, who praised Andrews’s record on health care, housing and education.
