Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair) has no interest in running for Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair.
“While I was honored to have my colleagues approach me, I am not running for chair of the DCCC. I know how critical the DCCC is to recapturing the House majority in 2024,” Sherrill said. “As a former red-to-blue candidate and Frontline member, I also know how important it is to understand the experiences of Frontline members and I stand ready to help and support our next chair.”
Sherrill issued her statement in response to a Monday post in Puck that suggested that Sherrill was “being pushed to run” for the post after the incumbent, Sean Patrick Maloney, lost his New York House seat to Republican Mike Lawler.
The Sherrill campaign had dismissed the report on Tuesday, but the exponentiation of the “I’m hearing that” rumor caused the North Jersey Democrat to leave to room for speculation.
In her successful bid for a third term, Sherrill leads Republican Paul DeGroot by over 49,000 votes and 17 percentage points.
