Obama makes pitch to NJ voters in new ad

NEW YORK (CNN)– President Barack Obama continued to make his pitch to New Jersey voters Saturday, in a new bilingual television commercial put out by the Jon Corzine campaign that encourages residents to keep the momentum going from the presidential elections and re-elect the governor on November 3.

"Jon Corzine is the kind of governor that New Jersey families need in these tough times," Obama says with Spanish subtitles featured below.

Resembling one of his own election campaign ads, Obama speaks about the need to work together with Corzine on the issues most detrimental to New Jersey and the country.

"Together we are working to reform health insurance, get our economy back on track and make our schools work for everyone."

"Last November with your help we began to move this country in the right direction. Now is your chance to keep it going. I need you, everyone of you, to vote on November 3rd," he says in the 30-second spot called “En tus manos,” which translates to “in your hands.”

President Obama will make his third trip to the state on behalf of Corzine next Sunday, two days before voters head to the polls.

The ad will air on broadcast television in the New Jersey/New York and Philadelphia regions.

    The president should keep his nose out of state politics – especially in my state! He should tend to business at the federal level and stay away from state matters. Even the citizens in New York want him to clam up regarding their governor's race!

    Jon Corizne is a disaster. Our unemployment rate has jumped 5% since he took office and he keeps raising our taxes, like a good little Democrat. Our property taxes are astronomical (the worst in the nation) and he talks about increasing taxes if he gets re-elected.

    Obama must be delusional to think that Corzine has done nothing but make a complete shambles of New Jersey. He needs to stay in Washington and take care of all of our mounting problems nationwide, which he has handled horribly!

    I have news for him and Corzine: Chris Christie is going to be our next governor, which will continue to show that Obama is losing credibility by the day!

    Corzine had 4 years, he failed. Why should he get another 4 years to fail again?

    Economy back on track? What country is he talking about? Germany just, through their newly elected officials, lowered taxes to help business get back on track and spur their economy, much unlike what "I" bama has done to destroy the U. S. A.
    Is he thinking about having NJ schools improved like Chicago?

    Chicago's schools are a war zone, "I"Bama helped guide that system.

    If you wish to have a Chicago style Government-vote for those fools.

    When the Peoples Republic of New Jersey slips through the death hold that the democratic party have held for decades, it will be more than just a change of power in New Jersey.

    It will represent a vote that America does not trust the DNC or their man in the White House.
