Christie Links Buono to Corzine in New Ad [VIDEO]
Governor Chris Christie's latest campaign commercial links likely Democrat challenger Barbara Buono to his predecessor Jon Corzine.
Displaying a picture of the state Senator and Corzine together, the female narrator says, “Meet Barbara Buono, Jon Corzine’s budget chair and now running for governor,” the spot says. It adds, “Buono voted 154 times to raise our taxes." The commercial ticks off a list of taxes she voted to increase.
The tone and mood picks up as the ad touts Christie's record of four balanced budgets, "no new taxes for anyone" and the most education funding "ever."
The campaign will cost the Christie campaign $800,000 for a week-long run starting Monday according to Politico.
Christie's first ad was titled "Jersey Proud" and connected his first term success to being from New Jersey.
