    Former Vice President Joe Biden addresses a gathering at campaign event for New Jersey Democratic gubernatorial candidate Phil Murphy, Sunday, May 28, 2017, in Lyndhurst, N.J. A former executive at Goldman Sachs and Barack Obama's ambassador to Germany, Murphy is the front runner in the Democrats' June 6 primary.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden questioned Democrats' strategy for representing the middle-class, suggesting Sunday that they "haven't spoken enough to the fears and aspirations to the people we come from," NBC News reported.

    "Because of the negative campaign that Trump ran, how much did we hear about that guy making 50,000 bucks on an assembly line, [and] the woman — his wife — making $28,000 as a hostess?" Biden asked a crowd of 1,200 at a campaign rally.

    Biden took the train from his home in Delaware on Sunday to campaign alongside Phil Murphy, the front-runner to win the Democratic nomination for the New Jersey governor's race on June 6.
