President Obama Stumps for Governor Corzine
Friday, July 17, 2009
New York, NY —
Before his speech at the NAACP last night, President Obama appeared at a campaign rally for New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine, which drew 17,000 people to the PNC Arts Center in Holmdel. WNYC's Bob Hennelly was there.
REPORTER: President Obama gave Governor Corzine effusive praise and offered the enthusiastic crowd a long list of reasons voters should return him to the state's highest office.
OBAMA: This is a man who has provided more property tax relief than any other Governor in New Jersey history.
REPORTER: While polls indicate Corzine is currently running behind his opponent, former US Attorney Chris Chrstie, President Obama's approval numbers remain strong. Corzine strategists are banking that Obama's luster is transferable. For WNYC I am Bob Hennelly.
