Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (New Jersey): What does continuing your father's legacy mean to you?

I just want to continue to do the types of things he was known for: fighting for the disadvantaged irrespective of where they are in the world, quality education for young people in our communities and just a humanitarian outlook on government and Congress and how we can help people move into the middle class and do well.
