West Caldwell, NJ — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) today released her first ad of the 2020 election cycle, underscoring the tough balance families are trying to strike between work, kids, and worrying about their health amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Sherrill highlights the work she’s done in Congress to protect access to healthcare.
The 30-second ad buy will run on cable starting September 15th.
“We’re all juggling a lot right now. Working, trying to make sure the kids don’t fall behind, worrying about our parents staying healthy. On top of all of that, you shouldn’t worry that you lose your insurance if you get sick, or that you can’t afford the care you need. That’s why I’m fighting to protect coverage for pre-existing conditions, and to let Medicare negotiate lower drug prices. We’re all going to work together, and we will get through this,” Congresswoman Sherrill says in the ad.
Sherrill was elected in 2018, after running on a platform of affordable healthcare, investments in infrastructure, and a fair tax system. During her first term in office, she has kept her promises. She played an important role in crafting the bipartisan Lower Drug Costs Now Act of 2019 (H.R. 3), ensuring a $10 billion investment in cancer research was included in the final bill that passed in the House. She helped secure $248 million for the Portal Bridge Replacement Project. She led on the bipartisan Restoring Tax Fairness for States and Localities Act that passed in the House to lift the SALT cap that was stifling New Jersey families. Throughout the pandemic, Sherrill has worked tirelessly to get PPE to our essential workers and funding to our hospitals, voting for both the HEROES Act and CARES Act.
