Peace organization supports Menendez

To the editor:

Recent polls show the U.S. Senate race in New Jersey is now a toss-up. As executive director of the Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action (CFPA), I’ve had extensive experience with Sen. Bob Menendez and his senior aides. I’m writing to urge voters who care about gun violence prevention and international peace issues to support Sen. Menendez.

Sen. Menendez has been a champion of all legislation to reduce the epidemic of gun violence in the U.S. He advocates for universal background checks, an assault weapons ban and many other critical gun safety initiatives.

Sen. Menendez was a strong, outspoken opponent of the Iraq War. When the last nuclear weapons reduction treaty came before the Senate in 2010, Sen. Menendez was a leader in its successful ratification.

When the Iran Nuclear Agreement was up for consideration, Sen. Menendez met with our delegation before deciding to oppose it in 2014. While we were disappointed with his decision, when President Donald Trump decided to withdraw from that agreement, he decided to advocate for the country to remain in it.

I urge New Jersey voters who care about peace and violence reduction in the US and abroad to vote for Sen. Menendez on November 6.

Rev. Robert Moore
