Former Vice President Joe Biden will be in New Jersey on Wednesday to campaign for Mikie Sherrill, the Democratic candidate for Congress in New Jersey’s 11th district.

Biden endorsed Sherrill last April, before she won the Democratic nominations nation.

The former Vice President was immensely popular in New Jersey.  In a July 2015 Monmouth University poll, Biden had approvals of 67%-17% in the Garden State.

A former U.S. Navy helicopter pilot and federal prosecutor, Sherrill faces Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-Morris Plains) in the race for the seat of retiring Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen.  Republicans have held the 11th district seat since 1984.

Biden’s successor, Vice President Mike Pence, was in Morris County in August to raise money for Webber.  Sources say they GOP candidate pulled in about $350,000 from that event.

  1. Where? Where? Where? I want to be there.
    I messaged Sen. Bill Bradley to see if he’d consider endorsing Mikie and, perhaps, campaigning for her. Someone should suggest that to VP Biden. Wouldn’t that be something@

  2. It’s not surprising that far left Democrat Sherrill is accepting the support of the Vice President who helped give us Obamacare, a failed stimulus scheme, excessive regulations, and record debt that led to the slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression. The choice in this election is between a far left ideologue and a problem solver with a record of fighting for taxpayers. Jay Webber for Congress!

    1. I guess Webber’s campaign strategy is to have shills post comments on websites that sounds like his intellectually dishonest stump speech. He is a complete whacko that DOES NOT have the respect of his fellow republican legislators in the statehouse…

    2. Slowest conomic recovery? You mean the recovery that we needed after eight ears of Bush/Cheney, and lax banking regulations that went unchecked? Fun fact for you Morris Voter:
      When Obama left office, Jan 20, 2017, the Dow closed at 19,827. When he entered office, Jan 20, 2009, the Dow closed at 7,949. In other words, in his 8 years in office the Dow went up roughly 250%. If Trump stays in office 8 years, the Dow would have to be 49,369 for his term in office to equal Obama’s as it relates to the stock market and the Dow Jones Industrial average. Republican leadership in the past 30 years always coincides with an economic downturn mostly due to badly thought out tax cuts, and insuffic…do some research.

      1. Bushco squandered the Clinton surplus and turned it into the greatest defecit in the history of the world with off the books perpetual war leaving generations yet unborn with the historic debt.
