Liberal advocacy group One New Jersey has purchased another $700,000 worth of air time, according to a source with knowledge of the media buy.
The latest purchase increases the group's total to $1.8 million on television and an additional $100,000 on radio.
To date, One New Jersey has run two anti-Chris Christie ads, attacking the governor first on his fiscal record and then later on his social policies. A radio ad running this week jabs the governor for his "hostility towards families in need."
It's unknown if there is a new commercial set to air with the latest purchase, but the group has now bought air time through May 21.
One New Jersey is to date the first outside group to wade into the election. As a 501 (c) (4) the group is restricted from acting in concert with Christie's opponent, Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono, but may attack the governor independently.
Christie is expected to have his own formidable cadre of outside groups operating in New Jersey, but so far no others have emerged.
One New Jersey is not required to disclose its donors and it is unknown who funds the group.
Buono has yet to go up with her first campaign ad, while Christie aired his first spot last week. That ad, titled "Jersey Proud," will continue to air on network and cable television through May 12.
Dissed by Gov. Chris Christie, New York Republican Gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino said Christie should consider stepping down from his post as chairman of the Republican Governors Assocation.Read More >

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
