JERSEY CITY – Today, Rob Menendez’s campaign for Congress in the Eighth District was endorsed by the Latino Victory Fund (LVF). LVF, whose founding members include Eva Longoria, aims to build political power within the Latino community so that the voices of Latinos are reflected at every level of government and in the policies that drive our nation forward.
“We are proud to endorse Robert Menendez for Congress in New Jersey’s 8th Congressional District. Rob is the son of dedicated public servants and the grandson of brave Cuban immigrants,” said Latino Victory Fund President & CEO Nathalie Rayes. “He has a deep understanding of the issues facing our community, and he will be a strong advocate for the Latino community in Washington. He understands the sacrifices many Latinos have made and will advocate for policies to help create opportunities for all.”
“I am proud to accept Latino Victory Fund’s endorsement,” said Rob Menendez. “With the Republican Party consistently pursuing policies that hurt Latino families in districts like ours, it has never been more important to engage our Latino communities and increase our representation in D.C. Working with LVF, we can ensure that our voices are heard and never underestimated.”
LVF’s vision is marked by a substantial increase in progressive Latino elected officials, Latino voter participation, and Latino political donations, making Latino voters a deciding factor in elections up and down the ballot throughout the country.
