"Congratulations to Bonnie Watson Coleman on her historic win. She has been a proven fighter for women's issues during her service in the Assembly. Her skills and leadership will be of great benefit to the people of New Jersey," said Michel Bitritto, WPCNJ President. "As an organization, WPCNJ is excited for the advancements made in the mid-term Congressional elections, with a record 100 women serving in the House and the Senate. However, there is still much work to be done and we are proud to have Congresswoman-elect Watson Coleman paving the way for the future of women in politics."
