DGA: 'We can win in New Jersey'

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."

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi
