Echoing many of the themes he sounded earlier this year at Drew University, former Vice President Joe Biden blasted President Trump and the GOP at a rally Wednesday for Congressional candidate Mikie Sherrill.
“I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired about what’s going on in this country today,” Biden told several hundred Sherrill supporters at Montclair State University.

Endorsing the former Navy helicopter pilot and federal prosecutor, Gov. Phil Murphy said “we need leaders with steel in their spines to lead us forward.”
Sherrill, a 46-year-old mother of four from Montclair, is the Democratic nominee facing Republican state Assemblyman Jay Webber (R-26th Dist.) of Morris Plains in the November race to succeed Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, a Republican retiring after 22 years in Washington.
The district spans portions of Morris, Passaic, Sussex and Essex counties.
