In the Corzine campaign's latest ad, released on Monday on broadcast and cable television, the incumbent governor stands behind President Barack Obama onstage as Obama plugs him in front of an exhuberant Holmdel audience.
"Jon's a leader who's been called to govern in some extraordinary times," says Obama in front of the crowd gathered last month at the PNC Arts Center for an Obama/Corzine rally. "Jon Corzine wasn't just the first governor to pass an economic rcovery plan for his state. He was an ally with the Obama administration in helping us pass a national recovery plan."
Chris Christie's campaign naturally panned the 30-second ad, noting the air time gobbled up by Obama, leaving Corzine with nothing to do but stand in the background.
"Since the start of the general election, it's been nothing but negative ad, after negative ad from Jon Corzine," said Christie campaign manager Bill Stepien. "...Considering nearly 200,000 New Jerseyans have lost their job in the last year, unemployment keeps rising and we still have the highest tax burden in the country, it's no surprise Jon Corzine is at a loss for words."
But the Corzine campaign is counting on Obama in this ad simply to lay down what they see as some essential glowing phrases, complete with cutaway shots to awe-struck faces.
"Jon Corzine has not only protected funding for New Jersey's schools," says Obama in the clip, "he reformed them with tougher standards, and now students in New Jersey rank at the top of the country in reading and math - because of Jon Corzine."

“Receiving $74,000 in severance pay is entirely inappropriate and unjustifiable. No elected official is entitled to sick or vacation time. You don’t put out your hand and beg, you raise your hand and say ‘Thank God I was healthy.' There’s no reason for anyone to collect money on the way out the door or for overtime.” - Council President Andre Sayegh, candidate for Paterson mayor.- PolitickerNJ.com
