On Monday, Gov. Phil Murphy will welcome President Joe Biden as he travels to New Jersey to unveil the Gateway’s Portal North Bridge and visit a New Jersey school as part of his efforts to get the Build Back program adopted. Better.
The president will be in New Jersey one week and one day before the November 2 general election.
Murphy once hosted former President Barack Obama and First Lady Jill Biden in the Garden State ahead of Election Day.
Tomorrow’s Biden trip marks the second time in two months that the president has visited New Jersey.
While a poll last week showed the tightening of the New Jersey governor’s race, few insiders are giving Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli a chance.
Last week, Ciattarelli scoffed at Murphy’s campaign strategy of relying heavily on the power of Democratic Party stars in the dying days of a dying campaign season.
“He can bring the ghost of FDR, I don’t give like -” Ciattarelli told about 400 people at a lively town hall meeting at a local fire hall in Parlin, according to InsiderNJ columnist Fred Snowflack .
Few would confuse Biden with Franklin Delano Roosevelt – but he’s the president – and he was in Manville last month as well.
Last month from InsiderNJ:
President Joe Biden has landed in New Jersey, departing from Marine One as he begins to visit the damage caused by Hurricane Ida. The president landed at La Guardia airport and then flew on Marine One to Manville.
The president’s helicopter was accompanied by three marine ospreys, with the press on board.
Representatives Frank Pallone, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Tom Malinowski and Governor Tom Murphy stood on the tarmac and greeted the President.
Immediately after landing, Murphy and Biden jumped aboard the ground transportation to Manville, past anti- and pro-Biden signs outside Jersey Central Airport.
Now, on the eve of his Monday trip:
From the White House:
President Biden to visit Newark, New Jersey
On Monday, October 25, the president will travel to Newark, New Jersey, to continue rallying public support for his bipartisan infrastructure deal and Build Back Better program.
