Gottheimer speaks in Sparta; Garrett backers picket

Congressional candidate Josh Gottheimer spoke on Wednesday in Sparta. The venue was the annual meeting of the Sussex County Association for Realtors at Perona Farms.

Garrett wasn’t there, but a handful of his supporters were. They picketed the realtors’ annual meeting carrying homemade signs.
