Sherrill tells Webber to talk Gateway with Trump

Says GOP candidate said in debate that he can communicate with Trump

By David Wildstein, October 18 2018 7:22 pm

Mikie Sherrill has something for Jay Webber’s to-do list when he sees President Donald Trump at a Washington fundraiser next Thursday: secure funding for a new tunnel under the Hudson River.

“Assemblyman Webber boasted last week at our debate that he could walk into the White House and sit down with President Trump to get the Gateway Tunnel funded,” Sherrill said. “I look forward to Assemblyman Webber’s press conference next Friday morning announcing the funding for the Gateway Tunnel, so we can move this critical infrastructure project for the country forward.”

Trump is headlining a high-dollar fundraiser for Webber at the Trump International Hotel to boost his chances of winning an open House seat in New Jersey’s 11th district.  The event includes a $20,000-per-person roundtable with Trump, something that gives Webber the chance to score a significant haul for the end of the campaign.

Polls show the race between Webber and Sherill to be within the margin of error.

  1. What Montclair Mikie doesn’t understand is that our glorious President, Donald J. Trump has much higher priorities than building a tunnel that only benefits liberal New York. We still need to finish The Wall, and even more important is our new Space Force. I think that we can all agree that protecting the world from alien invaders and securing our Southern Border are a bit more important than Gateway. I will ask President Trump if he would be open to headlining one of his flashy rallies in NJ-11, and that is something we can all agree would be outstanding!
