Mikie Sherrill told reporters this afternoon that her house is officially going on the market this week, as she prepares to move into the 11th Congressional District to run against U.S. Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-11).
“I think the sign will go in the yard either today or tomorrow,” Sherrill said. “I’m committed to be in the district by the primary.”
Sherrill lives in Montclair, a town split into the domains of two congress people.
“This district was gerrymandered in order to keep the incumbent as safe as he can be,” opined Woodland Park Mayor Keith Kazmark, who said he’s studied the district more than he ever would have thought possible.
“Her town is in the district,” Kazmark added. “As a resident she has a right to represent her concerns to either of the two congressmen. Don’t kid yourself. This was gerrymandered to protect Rodney Frelinghuysen. If she were coming from Point Pleasant, it would be a different story but she’s not. She’s moving across town.”
