DCCC Chairman Steve Israel’s Statement on Congressman Andrews’ Retirement in NJ-01

DCCC Chairman Steve Israel released the following statement after Congressman Rob Andrews announced his retirement in New Jersey’s 1st Congressional District.

“Representative Rob Andrews has been a strong voice for South Jersey in Congress for 24 years. In so many roles, he worked to improve health care for all Americans, bring jobs to his district through infrastructure investments and alternative energy projects, support our men and women in uniform and make sure that young people get a good education.

“Rob’s work for the people of New Jersey will be missed, but we wish him and his family well in their future endeavors, and are confident the people of the 1st District will elect another strong, problem-solving Democrat in this solidly Democratic district that President Obama carried with more than 65 percent of the vote in 2012.”
