The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) this afternoon amped up its opposition to Gov. Chris Christie in an email blast to supporters looking for cash.
"Unemployment and property taxes are up, and he’s hacked away at critical services. He’s also stood in the way of expanding access to women’s health services and vetoed increasing the minimum wage from $7.25 to $8.50 – after he gave millionaires a tax cut," according to the DGA's Lis Smith (pictured). "But there’s one problem: Christie’s hiding his record behind his bullying."
Arguing that Christie can be beaten if Democrats have the resources, Smith in her email tells supporters they need to raise $50,000 by midnight, Feb. 28th.
"Rush $3 or more to the (DGA) to help us get out the truth and defeat Chris Christie and other Republican governors," Smith says. "We can win in New Jersey. It would be a huge blow to the extremist GOP."

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
