Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg
“Now more than ever, it is crucial to encourage and support women to run for office which is why I am endorsing Rupande Mehta. In order to continue to combat New Jersey’s toxic political culture, we need representation that reflects New Jersey residents. I know Rupande will protect our core democratic values by standing up for a woman’s right to choose, the civil rights of the LGBTQ community, all people of color, and standing by DREAMERS.
I have dedicated my career to empowering diverse women. I am looking forward to working alongside Rupande in the Senate, who will be the first South Asian woman elected to the New Jersey legislature.”
