(Basking Ridge, NJ) Today, Tom Malinowski released the below statement.
“I am deeply grateful to the people of the 7th District for the honor of representing you, and I congratulate Congressman-Elect Kean.
This was a campaign of people and principles. It was, as in my other campaigns, built from the grass roots up and spoke directly to the concerns and hopes of hardworking people all across our region.
While we did as well or better than in 2020 in the communities I have represented these last four years, and I expect the results to tighten further as all votes are counted, the new district proved too much of a hurdle to overcome.
I’m gratified that across the country, Americans chose moderation over MAGA, while passing referenda protecting a woman’s right to choose. Our democracy and our freedoms are in stronger shape today than many predicted. And our achievements of the last few years, from infrastructure, to health care, to fighting climate change, are more secure.”
