By Nov. 3, most Americans will have voted by mail or gone to the polls to elect a president and vice president and their representatives to the United States Congress. New Jersey voters will elect 12 members to the House of Representatives and one U.S. senator. NJEA and NEA have endorsed candidates and one U.S. senator. NJEA and NEA have endorsed candidates in 11 congressional districts.
New Jersey voters in Legislative District 25 will vote to fill an open seat in the state Senate and the General Assembly. Each candidate was screened in their congressional district (CD) or legislative district (LD) by a committee of NJEA members who analyzed their responses in an interview and on a written questionnaire. For incumbents, their voting records were reviewed by the committee.
The committee’s recommendations were submitted to the NJEA PAC Operating Committee for consideration. NJEA PAC’s recommendations for the U.S. House of Representative and U.S. Senate were then sent to the NEA Fund for Children and Public Education for final endorsement. Endorsed candidates were invited to submit a brief statement for publication in the NJEA Review.
