Organization will support Democratic candidates and causes in New Jersey and nationwide

SUMMIT, NJ – Former New Jersey Seventh Congressional District candidate Goutam Jois announced the launch of “Ripple of Hope,” a political action committee to elect Democrats up and down ballot in New Jersey and nationwide.

“Robert Kennedy said a single act of courage sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,” said Jois.  “Inspired by that quote, I started this organization to support Democrats in New Jersey and nationwide who are creating ripples of hope to build a blue wave.”

Ripple of Hope is organized as a “hybrid PAC,” which enables it to function both as a traditional PAC, making contributions directly to candidates and committees, and as an independent expenditure PAC.

“We’re supporting candidates in tough races in New Jersey and beyond,” Jois said. “We raised thousands of dollars at our kickoff event to support Tom Malinowski for Congress as well as local candidates in Union County. We’ll continue to invest directly in candidates, in local parties to build capacity, and in independent expenditures, especially targeted toward those who might need an extra nudge to get out and vote.”

In New Jersey, Ripple of Hope has endorsed Robert Menendez for Senate; Andy Kim (NJ-03), Tom Malinowski (NJ-07), and Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) for Congress; David Naidu and Greg Vartan for Council (Summit); and Anjali Mehrotra for Council (Mountainside).  Elsewhere, Ripple of Hope has endorsed Andrew Gillum for Governor (FL), Heidi Heitkamp for U.S. Senate (ND), and Rob Richardson for State Treasurer (Ohio). Ripple of Hope’s independent expenditure arm is currently running targeted digital advertising in support of Robert Menendez and Tom Malinowski.
