Rep. Rush Holt running for US Senate

Posted: Updated:

Congressman Rush Holt represents the 12th District of New Jersey.

The Democrat is running for the US Senate seat of the late Frank Lautenberg.

Holt holds a PhD in physics and has a solar energy patent.

“Elections should be on the basis of substance and quality and I believe this one will be. My background, my accomplishments are what I’m presenting. I’ve been a member of Congress for a long time. I’m really better known for the person who brought $80M to suicide prevention to the VA and the DOD. I’m a teacher, a scientist and a committed progressive in the mold of Frank Lautenberg. I want to carry on that fight," said Holt.
