CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Republicans turned a campaign fundraiser featuring U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid into a rallying point.

More than 100 people protested outside event Monday at a Cherry Hill restaurant.

The intent was to raise money for New Jersey state Sen. Donald Norcross, who is running for Congress in the 1st District near Philadelphia. Tickets were advertised to Democrats at $2,600 each.

Norcross' Republican opponent, Garry Cobb, and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Jeff Bell both spoke at the rally. They said New Jersey should elect candidates who are not tied to Reid, a Nevada senator who is often criticized by Republicans.

Protesters had signs with slogans including, "Reid Go Home." A few wore colonial-era garb.
