Former Vice President Al Gore stumped on Sunday for Phil Murphy, Democratic candidate for New Jersey governor, Politico reports.

"This is a good man," Gore said of the former U.S. ambassador to Germany at an event in Ocean Township.

"We really have been extremely close friends," he added. "We have been in each others' homes multiple times, we've vacationed together."

The former presidential candidate later attacked Murphy's opponent, Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, and Gov. Chris Christie, asking if anyone in the audience was embarrassed by the administration.

"Has anybody here been embarrassed by what's gone on here?" He asked. "Here you have an administration in Trenton and a presidency in Washington, D.C., and sometimes it's kind of hard to take."

"I have been a keen observer of the many, many times of late that New Jersey has been in the news for something the current administration has done," Gore said.

At this point, one member of the crowd called out, "we're sorry."

Gore responded, "Don't tell me you're sorry about that. I'm sorry for you," according to NJ.com.

"What direction are we going to go? Are the beaches going to be open to all? Are the bridges not going to be used as political punishment?" he said.

"Remember that political will is itself a renewable resource. We need to renew it, we need to feed it, we need nurture it ... and we need to make Phil Murphy the next governor of the state of New Jersey."
