New Jersey's 11th District


For the past two years, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives has been advancing an agenda that favors the wealthy and the well-connected at the expense of hard-working American families. They’ve refused to check Donald Trump and his administration’s most damaging policies.

The midterms offer an opportunity to reject that path and elect leaders who will actually fight for their constituents on the issues that matter most—leaders like Mikie Sherrill.

Mikie Sherrill is a proven fighter who has dedicated her entire life to public service. She spent nearly a decade on active duty in the Navy, flying missions throughout Europe and the Middle East as a helicopter pilot. After that, she earned her law degree and eventually joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey, where she developed programs to reduce crime in the community and help people leaving prison restart their lives. As a mother of four and career public servant, Sherrill is sick of watching President Trump and his allies in Congress push policies that harm New Jersey families. She believes the people of the 11th district deserve a representative who will stand up for their values and defend their best interests—and that’s exactly what she’ll do if she’s elected.

“Mikie Sherrill spent years in the Navy flying helicopters before leaving the military for a career as a federal prosecutor. For her first foray into politics, she chose this year to challenge Republican Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen… Frelinghuysen has since announced his retirement, creating a bigger opening for Sherrill.”



“[Mikie Sherrill] was motivated in part by Trump’s travel ban and his public criticism of government institutions [...] Since then, she’s run on a platform that includes stricter gun control and environmental protections, and more funding for education and job training”
