Democratic State Chairman John Currie blasted state Sen. Brian P. Stack (D-33) for issuing a flyer to residents in support of incumbent Republican Gov. Chris Christie and critical of Christie's Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono (D-18).
"Please stand with me in supporting Gov. Chris Christie," Stack's flyer read in part. "Gov. Christie has been there for us."
The letter from Stack also refers to Buono.
"She's out of touch and clueless," Stack writes.
Currie punched back in a statement.
“As Chair of the Democratic Party I denounce Senator Stack's untrue and Christie inspired statement about Senator Buono," the chairman said. "While I respect the work that Senator Stack has done for his constituents, this type of language is frankly disappointing and does not reflect Senator Buono’s tremendous record as a leader on a host of issues that affect all New Jerseyans, including those that live in our urban areas.
“Senator Buono has been a true champion for New Jersey's working class, unlike Chris Christie and his failed economic record. The truth is Christie’s policies have left 400,000 hardworking residents out of work, while the majority of our state is paying out of control property taxes. Additionally, Chris Christie has imposed an extremely conservative social agenda upon residents, going so far as to limit family and women's access to preventative healthcare. This is the record of a Governor that is out of touch, and I am confident that the residents of Union City and all of New Jersey will recognize how clueless this administration has been when it comes to making government work for the middle class again."
Stack formally endorsed Christie last month.
Stack’s chief of staff issued a response to Currie’s statement.
“We expected obligatory statements of defense that would be delivered with a wink and a nod,” said Mark Albiez. “Such response is orchestrated by way of a temper tantrum and further illustrates why Gov. Christie is the superior choice.”

"During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."- Nelson Mandela
