New Jersey’s own Chris Smith has been recognized as a top ‘hard working’ congressman by Newsmax, Save Jerseyans.
Here’s what the national online publication had to say:
22. Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) — As far back as 1978, Chris Smith’s capacity for taking on Herculean labor was sensed. Having just reached the constitutionally required age for the U.S. House (25), sporting goods salesman Smith took on powerful House Administration Committee Chairman Frank Thompson (D-N.J.) in a hopeless race. But a memo from the National Congressional Campaign Committee hailed him as one of the hardest-working candidates anywhere. Two years later, however, Smith unseated Thompson and today he is still in Congress — one of two of the GOP’s 55 “Reagan babies” elected to the House with the 40th president and still serving. As passionate as always about the pro-life cause, senior House Foreign Affairs Committee Member Smith also devotes his considerable energy to battling persecution of Christians in the Middle East and slave trafficking worldwide.
