NORTH JERSEY — Today, March 27, 2024, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement on the passing of former United States Senator Joe Lieberman:

“Today, America lost one of our best. My friend and mentor, former Senator Joe Lieberman, served our nation in Congress for more than two decades. He was a trailblazer — the first Jewish candidate on a major presidential ticket. He inspired a generation of leaders to run for office, including me.

Time and time again, Joe put country over party to craft and pass commonsense legislation to improve the lives of people across the country. I am grateful for his strong voice for Americans everywhere.

May his memory be a blessing.”
