U.S. Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-11) today released her first television ad of the 2022 election cycle, underscoring how her military service informs how she tackles issues in Congress and highlighting her work to bring down taxes and everyday costs for New Jersey residents.
The 30-second ad will run on broadcast, cable, and OTT starting Wednesday, September 7.
“My lifelong commitment to public service was born from my admiration for my grandfather and his service during World War II. In the Navy, I worked with my team to complete the mission at hand. Now, my mission in Congress is to serve New Jersey and build the coalitions needed to get legislation passed. This summer, I secured lower prescription drug prices for our seniors, lower energy costs and taxes for our families, and lower everyday costs by fixing issues in our supply chain,” said Rep. Sherrill. “I’m running for reelection to continue my efforts to make New Jersey an even better place to live and do business in for generations to come.”
Sherrill was first elected in 2018 after running on a platform to lower healthcare costs, bring tax relief, and secure funding to complete the Gateway Tunnel Project. During her two terms in Congress, she delivered on these promises. With the recent passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, Sherrill lowered prescription drug costs and capped the price of insulin for Medicare recipients, as well as lowered costs of healthcare premiums and annual energy costs for families. Sherrill helped pass the CHIPS and Science Act, which addresses disruptions in our supply chains and will lower costs for items such as cars and cell phones by reshoring the manufacturing of semiconductor chips. As a result of her leadership, the Gateway Tunnel received the federal funding to be completed and she helped break ground on the first portion in August 2022.
Before entering Congress, Sherrill graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy and served as a Naval helicopter pilot and Russian policy officer for almost a decade. After that, she attended Georgetown Law School and went on to serve as a federal prosecutor at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in New Jersey. She is the mother of four school-aged children.
