NEW JERSEY’S 11TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT (open)

November 3, 2018 by TWN Staff

Current polling: Mikie Sherrill (D) 49, Jay Webber (R) 38 (NYT/Siena, 10/17)

Why this race matters: Sherrill, a woman whose star is quickly rising among her fellow Democrats, made waves earlier this year when she brought in a massive fundraising haul of nearly $1.9 million in the second quarter. The Naval Academy graduate, Navy Pilot and former federal prosecutor has the profile that will very likely put her over the top in this Congressional District, bringing the Democrats one step closer to winning the seats they need to take back control of the House.
