NJ 11th for Change
is ready to issue our first endorsement
of the 2022 Election Cycle!
Our first priority is — and always will be — New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District. In the spirit of fairness and genuine curiosity, we sent our in-depth endorsement questionnaire to both our incumbent congressional representative and the challenger in our CD-11 home district.
The incumbent, Dem Mikie Sherrill (perhaps you’ve heard of her?) gave thoughtful, detailed answers to our questions about the future of democracy, reproductive rights, the economy, gun safety, education, immigration, and more.
Her GOP opponent, some guy from Montville, couldn’t be bothered to respond to our questionnaire, so we can’t be bothered to remember his name.
In addition to ignoring our questionnaire, Mikie’s opponent has been declining to do mainstream press interviews and refused to participate in debates during the GOP primary. What’s he hiding? Perhaps … his extremist positions?Read more
As we gather together — in celebration or in protest — on this Independence Day, we cannot deny the truth: 2022 has been a year of highs and lows. And while we rail against the lows, we can also take heart from the highs.
We grieved as a nation over the massacre at Uvalde, Texas, and we raged when the Supreme Court gave its nod of approval to concealed carry less than a month later. (“Why,” wrote an aggressively callous Justice Alito in his concurrence to the decision, “does the dissent think it is relevant to recount the mass shootings that have occurred in recent years?”)
And yet… two days after that SCOTUS decision, President Joe Biden signed into law a bipartisan gun safety bill — not everything we desire, by a far stretch, but the most significant federal gun legislation to pass in over 30 years, despite the current gridlock in our House and Senate.
