Freshman Rep. Mikie Sherrill (D-Montclair), who appears to be one of the stronger members elected for the first time in November, has drawn a Republican opponent for 2020. Financial industry executive Reinier Prijten announced his congressional campaign on Friday.
Ms. Sherrill defeated state Assemblyman Jay Webber (R) 57-42% to replace veteran retired Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R-Morristown). It is unclear if this race will become a major GOP target but, if Mr. Prijten can organize a credible campaign and raise sufficient funds, this district can again become a competitive political venue.
