The political arm of the New Democratic Coalition is endorsing Mike Sherrill for the Democratic nomination for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district.
The endorsement is good for an $11,000 PAC check, as well as access to more fundraising opportunities.
The group is part of a national coalition of sixty House members who promote middle-class prosperity through fiscally responsible, pro-growth policies. Two New Jersey congressmen, Donald Norcross (D-Camden) and Josh Gottheimer (D-Wyckoff), are part of the New Democratic Coalition,
“Mikie Sherrill has shown a commitment to the forward-thinking, progress-oriented ideas that define the New Democrat Coalition,” said Jon Boughtin, political director for the NewDemPAC. “She is running a strong campaign and has what it takes to win in November. We look forward to working side-by-side with Mikie to bring home a victory and meet the challenges facing New Jersey’s 11th District head on.”
The NewDemPac contributed $11,000 to Gottheimer in his 2016 campaign to unseat seven-term Rep. Scott Garrett.
Sherrill, a former Navy helicopter pilot and federal prosecutor, is seeking the seat being vacated this year by Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Harding).
