WEST CALDWELL, NEW JERSEY — Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) endorsed Democratic presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg for president Thursday.
“I served in the Navy with members of our military community dedicated to making our country safer and stronger, and it’s clear we need the same level of commitment from our political leaders,” said Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill. “Mike Bloomberg embodies the integrity we need from leadership and I am proud to give my support to him today. His unwavering commitment to making our schools and streets safe from gun violence, investing in our region’s infrastructure, creating opportunities for our veterans, and protecting our environment is proof that Mike Bloomberg won’t back down from the many serious challenges we face as a country. Mike is a true public servant, and I’m confident he will move this country forward into a bright future.”
The endorsement comes as Bloomberg delivers remarks on leadership and protecting veterans and military families in Norfolk, Virginia tomorrow. He will also talk about his policy to address the urgent economic, health, and housing needs of America’s veterans and military families.
“Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill is a true patriot, a leader with integrity and the courage to act on her convictions, and we need more people like her in elected office,” said Mike Bloomberg. “She deserves to work with a president whose allegiance is to the country, not himself, and who is as committed as she is to rebuilding our infrastructure, reducing gun violence, and honoring our veterans — and that’s what I’ll be. I’m honored to have her support, and I look forward to working in partnership with her, building support across the aisle, and getting things done.”
