NJGOP Chairman: Mikie Sherrill Is An Agent Of The Murphy And Menendez Teams


Trenton, NJ – NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt released the following statement regarding Democrat Congressional candidate Mikie Sherrill’s alliances with Governor Phil Murphy and Senator Bob Menendez:

“The 11th Congressional District deserves a leader who will stand up to New Jersey’s Democrat party bosses. It deserves a representative who will put their constituents’ interests ahead of thier own. Democrat leadership is failing the people of New Jersey, and Mikie Sherrill stands defiantly on the deck of a sinking ship.

“First, a bi-partisan group of US Senators admonished Bob Menendez for his corrupt relationship with convicted felon Salomon Melgen, but Mikie Sherrill refused to distance herself from the toxic Senator and remains a proud member of his poison ticket. Second, in order to pay for his multi-billion dollar liberal agenda, Governor PhilMurphy is championing a budget that raises taxes indiscriminately on every New Jersey resident, but Mikie Sherrill won’t speak up for the very constituents Murphy’s budget will inevitably punish.

“Jay Webber is one of the most dependable defenders of New Jersey taxpayers. His constituents know they can count on him to oppose Phil Murphy’s plan to raise the sales tax, add a new income tax, and raise business taxes everywhere.

“Mikie Sherrill’s allegiance to Menendez and Murphy should alarm every voter in that district and sends a clear message that she’s the wrong person to send to Washington.”
