Cunningham endorses Gill for Congress

State Sen. Sandra Cunningham (D-31) said today she intends to support her Senate colleague, state Sen. Nia Gill (D-34) for Congress in the 10th District.

“I am definitely endorsing her and I will be encouraging people to support her,” Cunningham told PolitickerNJ.com. “She has excellent legislative skills. Nia has proven to me she that has a great deal of compassion; she is very articulate and she is consistently able to take her compassion and intelligence to create meaningful legislation. I believe she is savvy enough to handle herself in Washington, D.C.”

Cunningham said gender and New Jersey’s absence of women representation in Congress provide additional motivation for her to support Gill.

“A woman brings another perspective,” said the Jersey City senator. “As a woman she brings a great deal of honor.”

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
