U.S. Representative Mikie Sherrill (D-11) this evening released the following statement:
“We received news that our child care provider received a positive COVID-19 test. Luckily, everyone in our family has tested negative, however, we will be quarantining according to CDC guidelines.”
Sherrill is running in a contentious bid for reelection against Republican challenger Rosemary Becchi.
Yesterday, InsiderNJ columnist Fred Snowflack wrote the following about the latest collision between the two candidates:
After debating earlier in the week, Rosemary Becchi and Mikie Sherrill appeared separately yesterday and today in virtual forums with the Morris County Chamber of Commerce.
As a business organization, the chamber traditionally has a Republican tilt. But perhaps owing to her incumbency, the group seemed very comfortable with Sherrill.
Becchi, the GOP challenger to Sherrill in the suburban 11th Congressional district, declared in her opening statement that the election is a “choice between freedom and socialism.”
In contrast to that rhetorical flourish, the rest of the program was somewhat tame.
Two issues stood out.
One was health care.
Becchi said in a video a few weeks ago that she wants to eliminate the Affordable Care Act.
But when asked about her view of the ACA at the chamber event, she said nothing about getting rid of it.
