NOW endorses Andy Kim for U.S. Senate

The National Organization for Women (NOW) has endorsed Rep. Andy Kim (D-Moorestown) over Tammy Murphy in the Democratic primary, eschewing the chance to send the first woman from New Jersey to the United States Senate.

The NOW endorsement comes three weeks after NOW-NJ voted to recommend Kim – and despite deep fissures within the state group.

A second woman, activist Patricia Campos-Medina, is also in the race.

NOW is the nation’s largest grassroots women’s advocacy group and their endorsement comes hours before the Hunterdon County Democratic convention.

“I want to thank the New Jersey chapter of NOW for recommending this endorsement, and to the National Organization for Women for placing their trust in me to fight for the women of this country in the Senate,” Kim said. “I also want to thank both chapters for recognizing that the fight for equal rights and ending discrimination transcends gender lines. I have consistently taken on Republicans in Congress to protect women’s rights and close the inequality gap and have the experience needed to be ready on day one to take on Senate Republicans. I look forward to partnering with members of NOW NJ and others across New Jersey throughout the election cycle to knock on doors, make calls, and get out the vote.”’
