(Washington, D.C. – October 16) The Foreign Policy for America Action Network has endorsed Tom Malinowski, candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 7th District, the political action committee announced today.

“Tom Malinowski is a fearless advocate who stood up to dictators on behalf of the American people,” said Andrew Albertson, Executive Director of Foreign Policy for America. “He’s witnessed firsthand the power of American global leadership and will act to preserve America’s historic role as a beacon to the world. We enthusiastically support his candidacy for Congress.”

“I’m grateful to the Foreign Policy for America Action Network for their support and their efforts to promote principled American leadership in the world,” said Malinowski. “If elected, I will do everything in my power to defend America’s values of liberty, fairness, and respect for the rule of law at home and abroad.”

Malinowski has spent his life in public service. As an Assistant Secretary of State under President Obama, he fought to protect America by defending our values of liberty, equality, and rule of law around the world. On President Clinton’s National Security Council, Malinowski worked to strengthen NATO and end conflicts around the world. As Washington Director of Human Rights Watch, he helped lead a bipartisan effort to stop the use of torture so we could stay safe from terrorism without losing sight of who we are as Americans.  

Malinowski joins Andy Kim (NJ-3), Ken Harbaugh (OH-7), and Nancy Soderberg (FL-6) as the first four candidates for Congress endorsed by the Foreign Policy for America Action Network in the 2018 election cycle.
