Today, Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (D-NJ11) endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg for president, praising his commitment to reducing gun violence, protecting our environment, and rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure. She applauded his plan to support servicemembers transitioning out of active service and into civilian life by connecting them to high-quality and high-paying jobs, his commitment to protecting the country’s national security and economic interests, and his ability to restore the trust of the American people in our government once again.
“I served in the Navy with members of our military community dedicated to making our country safer and stronger, and it’s clear we need the same level of commitment from our political leaders,” said Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill. “Mike Bloomberg embodies the integrity we need from leadership and I am proud to give my support to him today. His unwavering commitment to making our schools and streets safe from gun violence, investing in our region’s infrastructure, creating opportunities for our veterans, and protecting our environment is proof that Mike Bloomberg won’t back down from the many serious challenges we face as a country. Mike is a true public servant, and I’m confident he will move this country forward into a bright future.”
“Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill is a true patriot, a leader with integrity and the courage to act on her convictions, and we need more people like her in elected office,” said Bloomberg. “She deserves to work with a president whose allegiance is to the country, not himself, and who is as committed as she is to rebuilding our infrastructure, reducing gun violence, and honoring our veterans — and that’s what I’ll be. I’m honored to have her support, and I look forward to working in partnership with her, building support across the aisle, and getting things done.”
Congresswoman Sherrill represents New Jersey’s 11th District, which includes Verona. Sherrill serves as Freshman Whip for the New Democrat Coalition, and sits on the House Armed Services Committee and the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.
