(Trenton) — Today, Chairman of the New Jersey Democratic State Committee John Currie reacted to reports that Governor Chris Christie had formed a political action campaign for the purpose of pursuing his national ambitions. His statement follows:
"After 137 days out of state last year, blatant and unethical efforts to cozy up to radical conservatives and wealthy donors alike, Chris Christie's national ambitions come as news to no one. It is, however, ironic that while New Jersey braces for major snow storm, Chris Christie is focusing on new ways to shovel campaign cash into his pockets."
"In the past year -- and as federal investigations into the Christie administration's misdeeds continue -- most of New Jersey have come to recognize that Chris Christie has done far more harm than good. This foolish escapade does not change the fact that he broke his promise to pensioners, neglected Sandy survivors, undermined the economy, wasted billions on failed corporate subsidies and increased property taxes on New Jersey families. That is why many of us are torn between wanting him to stay and do his job, and just wanting him to get lost."
