WASHINGTON (CNN) – The White House is dispatching Vice President Biden to New Jersey and Virginia later this week to campaign for each of the state's Democratic candidates for governor.
Biden will speak alongside Jon Corzine at the New Jersey AFL-CIO 2009 Legislative Conference in Atlantic City on Wednesday at the Borgata Hotel.
The Vice President will then return to the Washington area to raise money for Democrat Creigh Deeds the next day at a private home in Alexandria.
The visits mark the second time this year Biden has lent some administration firepower to the two gubernatorial campaigns - he first appeared with Corzine at a campaign rally in June, and helped Deeds raise money in July.
So long, Biden, Corzine and Deeds. Good riddance!
I guess the administration feels this is more important than dealing with Iran. The United States should turn over international leadership to France, at least France has the backbone to call out the Iranians.
Yeah, Go ahead Joe and while you're at it tell them all how well the stimulus did for the unemployed.
An AFL-CIO conference in New Jersey. Perfect. I'm sure Biden will assure them that, no matter the unemployment rate, their no-show jobs will be protected. They should give out "Corzine in '09" baseball bats to kneecap any non-union laborers they encounter.
I hope he can remember which is which. This man seems totally out of it. Very symptomatic of the democratic party.
What a joke... Biden is going to waste taxpayer money for travel to help campaign for two Democrats who have no chance for re-election. America is fed up with the liberal agenda and the voters are going to throw the bums out!
It's sad that this guy has any power. When will America wake up to goofy and his boss of fraud Obama.
Oh good, more help for the republicans.
it won't help.
Tax and spend Jon's days are numbered.
Like we really need this liberal idiot to grace us with his presence in VA. Stay in Washington and help the messiah continue to lead us done the road of destruction. i myself will enjoy paying 75% of my earned money to taxes to fund the deficit and welfare.
Thanks Obama for allowing Biden Freedom of Speech. Lost our jobs, house and retirement, we need a laugh. Now stop playing dead, Mr. VP speak.
Can't imagine Biden "helping" anyone. They must be in dire straits to want him to make an appearance. May be that Comic Relief is needed.
Deeds, Corzine and Biden.....thats great! get the blooper reel warmed up cuz this is going to be chuck full of idiotic comments by these three stooges!
Isn't Biden the same guy that had to drop out of the presidental campaign several years ago because if plagarism charges????And we're supposed to believe him. I forgot. He's a politician. He's allowed to lie, cheat and steal.
It is critical for Democrats to keep being elected UNLESS they are only going to continue to serve their Corporate Masters, just like the Republicans. You'd have to seriously persuade me to think otherwise given the actions/inactions of much of their own leadership! Bernie Sanders, Dennis Kucinich, Jim McDermott and some others are all we have standing in the way of total Fascism disguised to look like Democracy! Peace
That should lock up it up for the Republicans.
Boy, that will sure make me run to Creigh Deeds. He has no ideas and can only attack but now that Biden supports him. That changes everything.
Seeing as I live in New Joisey, and the Stimulus money is supposed to be stimulating democratic strongholds, how about stimulating some of our roads there, Veep?
Deeds and Biden go together. Both are bad for Va.; both want higher taxes in this state. Just say NO to Deeds in Nov. I will.
If Biden can help Deeds and Corizine both lose,than more power to him. I only hope he helps Dodd lose also. Time for a Change,from old to new and Term limits .
Just 11 months ago Democratic pundits like Carville were glouting that the GOP was dead for the next 40 years. So why are they leading in these two states that went for Obama? Could it be that the koolaid is wearing off?
"Independents trust Obama more than Democratic or Republican leaders in Congress to solve most problems. That puts the onus on the president to listen to that vast middle." – Christian Science Monitor
VP.BIDEN makes Dick Cheney look like G.Washintong
Thanks to Biden
We can’t expect Obama present all the events
