Chairman of the candidate screening committee for the Ocean County Democrats Kevin Barron discussed Biden’s visit with Patch today.

“We heard some saying, [when President Obama] visited, that he was only here because he was campaigning. But here [Biden] is after the election is over. This proves those critics wrong,” Barron said. “The President and Vice President are still spending that time here in New Jersey, and really do care about the residents of this state.”
