New Jersey — Today, voters in New Jersey’s 11th Congressional District re-elected NARAL-endorsed incumbent Rep. Mikie Sherrill to the U.S. House of Representatives. Her victory over anti-choice, anti-freedom Republican candidate Rosemary Becchi marks a huge win for reproductive freedom and saves a critical seat in the House.
In response to Sherrill’s victory, NARAL Pro-Choice America President Ilyse Hogue released the following statement:
“We are proud to have endorsed Representative Sherrill, a proven champion for reproductive freedom, and congratulate her on winning this critical race. We know that Representative Sherill will continue to be a fierce defender of our fundamental rights in the U.S. House of Representatives—and we need elected officials like her now more than ever.”
In the 2020 election cycle, NARAL Pro-Choice America ran its largest-ever electoral program designed to reach, persuade, and mobilize key voters in target states across the country who are motivated by Trump and Republicans’ unyielding attacks on reproductive freedom.

For over 50 years, NARAL Pro-Choice America and its network of state affiliates and chapters have fought to protect and advance reproductive freedom—including access to abortion, contraception, and paid family leave—for every body. NARAL is powered by its more than 2.5 million members from every state and congressional district in the country, representing the 7 in 10 Americans who believe every person should have the freedom to make the best decision for themselves about if, when, and how to raise a family.
