The county party chairmen of Essex, Passaic, Morris, and Sussex announced their support for former Navy heli­copter pi­lot Mikie Sher­rill (D). Morris County Chairman Chip Robinson said Sherrill is building “brick by brick … the type of foundation we need in order to beat Congressman Frelinghuysen in the fall.” Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen (R) is a 22-year incumbent in the district, and the endorsement marks “the first time that all four counties have come together early to mount a serious challenge.” Sherrill joins three other Democratic candidates competing for the seat, in a district poised to become a battleground with the GOP in 2018.

Other candidates vying for the Democratic nomination include former Na­tion­al Guard spe­cial­ist Jack Gebbia (D), international divorce coach Tamara Harris (D), and International running club President Mark Washburne (D).
