Pence and Webber barnstorm in Morris County

MORRISTOWN, N.J. — It’s hardly a bad way for any candidate to end a week.

Vice President Mike Pence spent a considerable amount of time in North Jersey on Friday afternoon, headlining a 1:00 p.m. fundraiser for NJ-11 GOP nominee Jay Webber before doing a little retail campaigning with Webber at a popular nearby Florham Park eatery.

Webber, arguably the most conservative member of the New Jersey General Assembly, is facing off against Democrat Mikie Sherrill this fall in a wealthy, lean-Republican suburban New York City district that is nevertheless considered ripe for a Democrat win this year given ominous local and midterm trends, a weakened regional party, the SALT deduction flap, and a vacancy (the retirement of Rodney Frelinghuysen).

The only public polling results published to date showed a statistical dead heat, with Sherrill leading narrowly inside the margin of error but with a significant number of undecided voters.

Both Pence and Webber tweeted images from the campaign trail:
