On Monday Governor Phil Murphy will welcome President Joe Biden as he visits New Jersey to break ground on the Gateway Program’s Portal North Bridge and tours a New Jersey school as part of his efforts to pass the Build Back Better Agenda.
The President will be in New Jersey a week and a day before the Nov. 2nd general election.
Murphy has already welcomed former President Barack Obama and First Lady Jill Biden to the Garden State in advance of Election Day.
The Biden trip tomorrow marks the second time in two months that the President has come to New Jersey.
While a poll last week showed the New Jersey governor’s race tightening, few insiders give a shot to Republican challenger Jack Ciattarelli.
Last week, Ciattarelli jeered at Murphy’s campaign strategy of leaning heavily on Democratic Party star power in the closing days of a moribund campaign season.
“He can bring in the ghost of FDR, I don’t give a s —,” Ciattarelli told about 400 people at a lively town hall meeting in a local fire department hall in Parlin, according to InsiderNJ columnist Fred Snowflack.
Few would mistake Biden for Franklin Delano Roosevelt – but he is the president – and he was in Manville last month, too.
President Joe Biden landed in New Jersey, departing Marine One as he begins to tour the damage here wrought by Hurricane Ida. The President landed at La Guardia Airport then flew on Marine One to Manville.
The President’s helicopter was accompanied by three Marine Ospreys, with press onboard.
Reps. Frank Pallone, Bonnie Watson Coleman, Tom Malinowski, and Governor Tom Murphy stood on the tarmac and greeted the president.
Immediately upon landing, Murphy and Biden jumped aboard ground transportation for Manville, past anti- and pro-Biden signs outside Central Jersey Airport.
Now, on the eve of his Monday trip:
From the White House:
