Norcross basks in list of statewide support for his CD1 run

Today State Senator Donald W. Norcross (D-5) issued the following statement in response to the support (see complete list below)

Today State Senator Donald W. Norcross (D-5) issued the following statement in response to the support (see complete list below) he’s received following the retirement announcement of U.S. Rep. Robert E. Andrews (D-1):

“I am truly honored to have received these significant endorsements in my campaign for Congress,” said Norcross. “As someone who spent my earlier career as a union electrician working on high tension wires, the tops of major bridges, and other dangerous workplaces, it is a very humbling experience to enjoy this depth of support in my continued fight for South Jersey’s struggling middle class. 

“Make no mistake about it, I am a proud Pennsauken boy who never forgot where he came from. Being a fighter for people is not a cliché or a cheap political slogan to me. It’s who I’ve always been prior to entering public life. As Congressman, I will work to provide world class educational and vocational training opportunities so our kids can compete in the ever-evolving global economy. As I’ve done quite successfully in Trenton, I will work with Democrats and Republicans in Washington to ensure that New Jersey gets its fair share from the extraordinary amount of taxes we pay back to the federal government. I will also work with business and industry to lure the kinds of good-paying, family-sustaining jobs that South Jersey needs most right now. I get results. Now let’s get to work.”
