jQuery Syntax

I'm getting an error in a javascript file.  The following is the rendered script.
<script>jQuery('#ns_widget_mailchimp_form-2').ns_mc_widget({"url" : "/index.php", "cookie_id" : "ns_widget_mailchimp-2", "cookie_value" : "c6f9f35ef27fb02131f8b4e0a821a4fe", "loader_graphic" : "plugins/mailchimp-widget/images/ajax-loader.gif"})(jQuery); </script>

Open in new window

The error says: ns_mc_widget is not a function.  On investigation it has something to do with the way the script is opening the jQuery?  Any help?

>> ns_mc_widget is not a function
Look at the browser's source code.  Get rid or comment out line 116:
<!-- <script type='text/javascript' src='//code.jquery.com/jquery-1.8.3.js'></script> -->

You are already importing jQuery core library on line 11.

Good catch.  However, the error is still there.
You should be importing just one version of the core library.  Line 22 has yet another copy.  As for your jQuery-UI, does it have the core jquery bundled as well?
