Mercer County, NJ - Rep. Chris Smith, (NJ-04) kicked off another day of campaigning this morning, meeting with working men and women from across central New Jersey who will be going door-to-door throughout the Fourth Congressional District over the next several weekends to “Get Out The Vote” for Chris Smith in his reelection campaign.

Smith, the only Republican endorsed by the NJ State AFL-CIO, said he deeplyappreciates the powerful organization’s leadership on issues critical to working families and is impressed with their vast GOTV operation that compliments the endorsement by helping to motivate voters on election day.

“It is inspiring and encouraging to see how the AFL-CIO’s grassroots member-to-member process works,” said popular congressman who represents parts of Monmouth, Ocean and Mercer counties. “Volunteers spend time visiting fellow union members to talk about the coming election and I am honored to have their support,” Smith said.

Smith is widely recognized as a bipartisan problem solver who effectively works across the aisle to get things done—fighting to grow our economy, improve infrastructure, and bring jobs to New Jersey especially and including at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst. He has successfully written laws on a variety of issues critical to New Jersey’s working families—veterans laws; laws regarding healthcare, autism, and education; anti-human trafficking laws to combat both sex and labor trafficking; and laws protecting all children, human rights, and national security. He is a legislative leader, second among 435 in the House of Representatives when it comes to getting bills successfully enacted into law.

The New Jersey AFL-CIO represents more than one million members and their families across New Jersey.
