Obama remarks at Holmdel

The Corzine campaign has posted the full speech from President Obama yesterday at the rally in Holmdel:

The campaign sent out an email with the video along with pointing out some of the high points of the Corzine administration that the president touched upon in his speech:

We have accomplished so much for our state in the last 4 years. As President Obama highlighted yesterday in his speech, the Corzine administration:

  • Has provided more property tax relief than any other administration in New Jersey history.
  • Was the first administration in 60 years that has reduced the size of government, not just talked about it.
  • Not only protected funding for New Jersey’s schools, but also reformed them with tougher standards.
  • Expanded Children’s Health Insurance Program by 80,000 more kids.
  • Turned New Jersey into a leader in clean energy.
  • Led the way on the economic recovery with the New Jersey economic simulus plan and was an ally with the Obama administration in helping to develop the national recovery plan.
  • They closed the email to supporters with this:
