Defeat of anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican challenger Thomas Kean Jr. is a win for New Jersey and reproductive freedom
New Jersey — Earlier today, New Jersey voters reelected NARAL-endorsed incumbent Rep. Tom Malinowski to represent New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. His victory over anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican challenger Thomas Kean Jr. marks a huge win for reproductive freedom.
In response to Rep. Malinowski’s reelection, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:
“We are proud to have endorsed Representative Tom Malinowski, a proven champion for reproductive freedom, and congratulate him on winning reelection. It’s clear that voters in New Jersey’s 7th Congressional District understand that the stakes are higher than ever and refuse to allow anti-choice, anti-freedom politicians like Thomas Kean Jr. to trample on their fundamental rights. We are thankful to have Representative Malinowski with us in the fight for our fundamental rights and look forward to continuing our work together to protect and expand reproductive freedom.”
In the 2020 election cycle, NARAL Pro-Choice America ran its largest-ever electoral program designed to reach, persuade, and mobilize key voters in target states across the country who are motivated by Trump and Republicans’ unyielding attacks on reproductive freedom.
Rep. Malinowski was first elected to the U.S. House in 2018 and has earned a 100% score from NARAL in the Congressional Record on Choice.
For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters have fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom—including access to abortion, contraception, and paid family leave—for every body. NARAL is powered by its more than 2.5 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 7 in 10 Americans who believe every person should have the freedom to make the best decision for themselves about if, when, and how to raise a family.
