JERSEY CITY – Today, Rob Menendez’s campaign for Congress in the Eighth District was endorsed by the Committee for Hispanic Causes (CHC) BOLD PAC, the campaign arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. The Eighth Congressional District is a majority-Hispanic district and one of the most diverse districts in the country.
“I’m running to represent one of the most diverse district’s in America – a place that my Cuban grandparents chose to plant their American roots and begin their American story, the place where my wife and I are raising our family; that is why I am honored and humbled to accept BOLD PAC’s endorsement,” said Rob Menendez. “Our community’s voices must be heard in Washington, D.C., and in Congress, I will fight every day to ensure that the concerns and issues facing Hispanic residents of our district are acted upon and that we are building a brighter future for everyone who calls the Eighth District home. Thank you to Chair Gallego and the entire BOLD PAC team for this show of confidence in our campaign and our values.”
“We need to meet this moment with bold actions; that’s why CHC BOLD PAC is proud to endorse Rob Menendez for Congress,” said CHC BOLD PAC Chairman Ruben Gallego. “Rob is running for Congress to strengthen families and to fight for access to healthcare, good-paying union jobs, better childcare, and so many more priorities to address the challenges facing this nation. We need his voice in Congress, and CHC BOLD PAC is proud to stand with him.”
CHC BOLD PAC was founded in 2001 and is dedicated to electing Latinos and Latinas to Congress. Over the past 20 years, BOLD PAC has doubled the size of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.
While its core mission focuses on increasing diversity in Congress, BOLD PAC has also played an integral role in making and defending the Democratic majorities in the House and Senate. In 2020, BOLD PAC endorsed 117 House and Senate candidates across the country and contributed $1 million directly to their campaigns. These efforts helped elect and re-elect 45 Members of Congress.
