Harry Reid Greeted by Protesters at Dem Fundraiser in New Jersey

August 5, 2014

Senate majority leader Harry Reid was recently in New Jersey to campaign for fellow Democrat Donald Norcross.

Not everyone was happy about Reid’s appearance in the Garden State…

Protesters meet Sen. Reid at Cherry Hill fundraiser

New Jersey Republicans turned a campaign fundraiser featuring U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid into a rallying point.

More than 100 people protested outside the event Monday at Caffe Aldo Lamberti, situated at the intersection of Haddonfield Road and Route 70.

The intent was to raise money for New Jersey state Sen. Donald Norcross, who is running for Congress in the 1st District near Philadelphia. Tickets were advertised to Democrats at $2,600 each.

Norcross’ Republican opponent, Garry Cobb, and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Bell both spoke at the rally. They said New Jersey should elect candidates who are not tied to Reid, a Nevada senator who is often criticized by Republicans.

Protesters had signs with slogans including, “Reid Go Home.” A few wore colonial-era garb.

The Bucks County Courier Times noted a significant detail…

The public and media were barred from the event.

    REBLOGGED; This is the type of news event that needs to be shared not only with the locals but nationwide. Let everyone see those of us that are awake do not think as highly of the elected officials as they do themselves and those asleep. Too bad this is not taking place back in his home state. Harry Reid you are not invincible.
