Reinier Prijten files against Sherrill in NJ11

PwC manager first Republican to enter the race

By Nikita Biryukov, April 04 2019 4:16 pm

Rep. Mikie Sherrill has her first 2020 challenger.

Reinier Prijten, a manager at PricewaterhouseCoopers, filed his paperwork to run for Congress Wednesday.

“Today, this land that I love faces some mammoth challenges. Mounting debt,; the rise of China; an aging and over-extended military’ porous borders; a growing number of Americans who think socialism is the answer,” Prijten said in a fundraising email. “All of these are grave threats to the America we love. I am running for Congress to preserve the America that made me want to be an American.”

The former JP Morgan vice president served as an intern in the offices of former U.S. Sens. John Warner (R-Virginia) and Pete Domenici (R-New Mexico)

Prijten, who moved to the United States from the Netherlands when he was 18, is running in former Gov. Chris Christie’s home district. The candidate gave $2,000 to U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-Texas.) presidential campaign in 2016.

The Morristown resident is basing his early campaign strategy largely on stricter immigration policy and opposing socialism, which the Republican called the greatest internal threat to America.

  2. This is not the guy for GOP to take back this seat. They need someone with a proven record of good government, lower taxes, less spending etc.
