The Congressional Progressive Caucus PAC has endorsed Rep. Donald Norcross (D-Camden) for re-election next year.
No Democrats have said they plan to challenge Norcross in the 2020 Democratic primary in New Jersey’s 1st district.
Norcross is the vice chair and liaison to organized labor for the caucus. He is one of 31 incumbents to win the endorsement, and one of two from New Jersey. The caucus endorsed freshman Rep. Andy Kim (D-Marlton) in June.
“I’m proud to stand with Congressman Norcross as we fight for our shared progressive priorities, from reducing the costs of childcare and prescription drugs to protecting the rights of America’s immigrants,” said Progressive Caucus Co-Chair Pramila Jayapal (D-Washington). “Don’s unique perspective as a labor leader and worker advocate is critical to the success of our progressive agenda to raise wages and lift up working families.”
