A former President Clinton speechwriter is launching a political career of his own.
Speechwriter, run! If there’s a candidate who speechwriters from every political stripe could get behind, it’s Josh Gottheimer, cuz he’s one of us. The former President Clinton speechwriter is running as a Democrat for Congress, in New Jersey’s 5th District.
New Jersey Senator Cory Booker attended the launch this week of Gottheimer’s campaign, which has raised $1.3 million, against Republican incumbent Scott Garrett’s $2.4 million.
From your speechwriter friends: Godspeed, Gottheimer. —DM
