WASHINGTON, D.C. – Representatives Bill Pascrell, JR (NJ-O9) officially weighed in the race for the White House Wednesday with his endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden to be President of the United States.

Pascrell was joined in the endorsement by thress of his House colleagues, Representatives Donald Norcross (NJ-01), Josh Gottheimer (NJ-05), and Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11).

Pascrell said that defeating Donald Trump and replacing his  “inept and corrupt government” is the highest priority, and while the Democratic Party  “has been blessed with an incredible field of qualified candidates who would make Americans proud as our chief executive," Pascrell left no doubt that Biden was his choice.

He’s got my support."
