The Republican Governors Association (RGA) today launched a new TV ad explaining why Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine has been attacking the GOP nominee, former U.S. Attorney Christopher Christie. The RGA has not disclosed the amount of their buy, which also claims that Corzine raised taxes "by billions of dollars," despite promises in his 2005 campaign.
"New Jersey can't trust Jon Corzine. He promised to cut taxes and bring jobs to New Jersey, but he's done exactly the opposite," said RGA communications director Mike Schrimpf. "Now, Corzine knows he can't defend his own record, so he's falsely attacking Chris Christie. You need to watch what Corzine does, not what he says."
The Christie campaign has not been on the air since the June primary. The Corzine campaign has spent $1.5 million on TV ads, and 527 organizations have spent another $1.4 million.
