Prudential Center packed for Obama-Corzine rally

NEWARK – If there were any doubts about turnout at the Prudential Center this afternoon, they ended about a half hour ago.

This is not Joe Biden at Middlesex County College.

The place is packed for President Barack Obama.

"Give us the energy we see here today, and we'll get it done, I promise you," state Sen. Loretta Weinberg (D-Teaneck) tells the crowd.

Later in the program, Mayor Cory Booker stands on the ground at the Rock.

The crowd goes berserk.

"He has had a vision for creating an economy in the State of New Jersey that will plant the seeds for tomorrow's brighter days," the mayor says of Corzine. "We need an alignment from Washington, D.C. that stretches to right here in Newark."
