Republican Paul DeGroot wants Mikie Sherrill one-on-one in CD-11. At least three times in fact.
DeGroot this week challenged the incumbent Democrat to a minimum of three debates beginning in September.
DeGroot wants at least one debate in each of the three counties that make up the district – Essex, Passaic and Morris. He says he wants the debates to be in-person, not virtual.
A spokesperson for Sherrill’s campaign was not immediately available.
However, in her two previous campaigns, Sherrill and her then-GOP opponents debated more than once.
In 2020, there were at least two virtual debates between Sherrill and Rosemary Becchi, including one hosted by Insidernj.com
And in 2018, Sherrill and Republican Jay Webber met three times in face-to-face debates. One was on television and the others were in Wayne and Ogdensburg, Sussex County.
