Biden supporter thrilled that Obama picked ‘New Jersey’s third Senator’

New Jersey superdelegate June Fisher said that she’s “in ecstasy” over Barack Obama’s pick of Joe Biden as Vice President.

Fisher was one of three New Jerseyans who headed up Biden’s small presidential campaign in this state. She’s known him since 1974, when he came to speak at a convention in Atlantic City.

“It’s incredibly positive for New Jersey. There are people in some parts of New Jersey who think of him as our third Senator,” said Fisher, who’s been walking around the lobby of the Inverness Hotel in Denver and hugging everyone she knows.

Fisher said that Biden is very popular in New Jersey, especially in the southern extremities that are just across the Delaware Memorial Bridge from Biden’s home state.

“It’s incredibly positive for New Jersey. There are people in some parts of New Jersey who think of him as our third Senator,” she said. “He was everybody’s second choice in New Jersey to begin with is the way I saw it. I can’t say enough.”
