Former Governor Chris Christie floated the idea of his wife, Mary Pat Christie, running for Congress in the 11th district next year as a challenger to freshman Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill, according to a report at NewJerseyGlobe.
Sherrill, who flipped the Republican 11th district convincingly with a 57%-42% victory over Assemblyman Jay Webber, and raised a gazillion dollars to do it, will be tough to beat in 2020.
Mary Pat would have a much easier race against 3rd district freshman Congressman Andy Kim who barely beat Tom MacArthur last year. The Chrisites own a house in Bay Head, in addition to their home in Mendam. MacArthur relocated to Ocean County from Morris County to run for the seat after Jon Runyan retired in 2014.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Chris Christie, New Jersey | Tags: 2020 congressional elections, Chris Christie, Mary Pat Christie, New Jersey, Ocean County Politics | 7 Comments »
