Mikie Sherrill, Democrat for NJ-11

Mikie Sherrill

US House New Jersey — 11th District Democrat
Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill is a Naval Academy graduate, Navy pilot, and former federal prosecutor. She served nearly 10 years on active duty in the Navy, flying helicopter missions in Europe and the Middle East. As a prosecutor, she worked to build trust between residents and law enforcement and get illegal guns off the street.

Representative Sherrill’s victory in 2018 was emblematic of the larger shift in support for gun safety across the country. In her suburban district with deep Republican roots, voters grew tired of the incumbent’s support for the gun lobby’s dangerous agenda. Congresswoman Sherrill ran on a commonsense gun safety platform and campaigned with Congresswoman Gabby Giffords at an event that lifted up the voices of other veterans alongside trauma surgeons who have treated gunshot victims. In Congress, Representative Sherrill has been an authentic and powerful advocate for gun safety.

We are proud to endorse Mikie Sherrill for the US House of Representatives in 2020.
