Statement from Chairman John S. Wisniewski On Christie US Senate Process Announcement

(TRENTON, NJ) – State Democratic Party Chairman John S. Wisniewski issued the following statement regarding Governor Chris Christie’s announcement of the process to fill New Jersey’s US Senate seat:

“Democrats believe an election should be held in a timely manner, however in what appears to be a blatantly political move, the Governor would rather spend $12 million in taxpayer funds on a special election when a general election is scheduled for less than three weeks later.” said Wisniewski. “Chris Christie’s decision speaks more to his national political ambitions than his responsibility to the residents of New Jersey as Governor.”
