U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ) is scheduled to be in attendance at that fundraiser, but his challenger wants the President publicly front and center, and snarkily called on Obama and Booker to hit the beaches.
“Rather than just spend his time in New Jersey indoors at a Democratic Party fundraiser, President Obama should join with Cory Booker and engage with voters by the beach while the weather’s still pleasant,” said Bell in a statement. “I look forward to seeing how voters feel about the both the President’s and Cory Booker’s job performance. Cory Booker has a record in the U.S. Senate of voting 100% with the Obama agenda. While President Obama may also choose to answer questions from the press while he’s in New Jersey, I would not expect Senator Booker to start doing that.”
Booker for Senate Campaign Manager Brendan Gill released the following statement:
“Note to Virginia resident Jeff Bell: Here is New Jersey, we call it ‘the Shore.'”
