Assemblyman Jay Webber accused Mikie Sherrill of denigrating New Jersey citizens when she said that Webber belongs in Arkansas over New Jersey based on his policy stances.
“Apparently Mikie Sherrill believes she is the self-appointed gatekeeper of the Garden State, sitting in her far-left bubble and suggesting that if we don’t share her values, we should move to Arkansas,” Webber spokeswoman Ronica Cleary said. “Not only is that insulting to the people of New Jersey, it is also flatly insulting to our fellow Americans in Arkansas.”
The attack, which targets a Sherrill mailer, is an attempt to capitalize on the same resentment created when former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called Trump supporters “deplorables” in 2016.
Webber claims the mailer lists a number of unsubstantiated positions it claims he holds. It’s not clear if that is the case.
