TOMS RIVER-Andy Kim, a Democrat operative and former aide to President Barack Obama has received an endorsement from his former boss.
Kim, who according to documents on record served as a “note taker” in the State Department briefly during the Obama Administration, is running for Congress in New Jersey’s 3rd Congressional District against Republican incumbent Tom MacArthur.
“Today I’m proud to endorse such a wide and impressive array of Democratic candidates — leaders as diverse, patriotic, and big-hearted as the America they’re running to represent,” Obama said. “I’m confident that, together, they’ll strengthen this country we love by restoring opportunity, repairing our alliances and standing in the world, and upholding our fundamental commitment to justice, fairness, responsibility, and the rule of law. But first, they need our votes.”
MacArthur has said recently that Andy Kim, if elected in his district in November would be part of the “Blue Wave” movement which seeks to impeach President Donald Trump.
