Congressman Chris Smith has been endorsed for reelection by the 33,000 member New Jersey Police Benevolent Association.
In his letter to Smith announcing the endorsement, PBA President Patrick Colligan said:
While Washington remains bitterly divided over partisan and political matters, your service stands out in your commitment to the men and women of law enforcement in New Jersey and around the nation. You have remained true to New Jersey’s law enforcement community during your service in Congress. You fought for funding for officers and resources in our communities, to protect victims of crime and to ensure that the mental health and safety of our officers is a priority in this nation. And, most importantly, you have demonstrated respect for the officers who protect us when they have come under attack.
