Stephanie Schmid, Democrat for Congress in NJ-04, has been endorsed by BlueWaveNJ, a grassroots organization working to protect and improve the rights, opportunities, and quality of life of all people through direct advocacy, public education on critical issues, and community mobilization.
BlueWaveNJ issued the following statement: “The district needs new leadership, and that is why BlueWaveNJ enthusiastically endorses Stephanie Schmid. Candidate Schmid holds an impressive resume as a foreign service officer and diplomat for the U.S. Department of State and as a human rights attorney and advocate. In-office, Schmid will focus on securing affordable healthcare for every American, protecting women’s reproductive rights, combating climate change, passing gun safety reforms, and ensuring every child has access to pre-K and early learning programs. Her record of service and the contrast of her priorities from her opponents shows an individual who will be an advocate for BlueWaveNJ’s goals. She faces a tight race, but Schmid is a strong candidate that represents the best chance to flip the 4th Congressional District blue.”
