N.J. Dem Facing Questions about Campaign Travel Spending


Rep. Rob Andrews (D., N.J.) is under scrutiny for taking several campaign-funded trips to California at a time when his daughter was trying to make it big in Hollywood.

The Hill reports:

According to an analysis by The Associated Press, Andrews spent $97,000 in campaign money on at least 18 trips to California in the last five years.

At least four of the trips coincided with appointments attended by his daughter, Josie, at her record label, the analysis said.

Records also show that Andrews raised about $260,000 for his campaign from California residents and groups during that time. Roughly six of the trips appeared to include major fundraising events.
