Andrews is the wife of Rob Andrews, who served as the district's Representative from 1990 to 2014. In 2008, when Rob Andrews ran against Lautenberg, Camille Andrews was asked to be the Democratic primary nominee. Democratic Party leaders, under pressure to find a replacement before the filing deadline for the primary, picked Camille Andrews as a placeholder while acknowledging they had not yet decided who to run in November. She said she truly wants to be elected but also wants to respond to the party's needs. Andrews was endorsed by Philadelphia and New Jersey newspapers. “Camille Andrews actually would make an ideal candidate. The Philadelphia Inquire said, "An attorney, she has an impeccable resume as a commercial litigator, investment firm manager, and former associate dean at Rutgers-Camden Law School." Andrews easily won the primary June 3, 2008. In September, Camille withdrew her candidacy. After losing to Lautenberg, Rob Andrews originally considered leaving office having received lucrative job offers in the private sector. Andrews had notified the House in his plan to take a position at the Wall Street Investment firm Goldman Sachs but ultimately decided to seek re-election in September 2008. In November 2008, Andrews won re-elcection, beating his opponent with 73% of the vote.
