Governor Chris Christie launched a $1.2 million television ad campaign this morning entitled Jersey Proud. Thankfully, the ad does not mention the words ‘Corzine’ or ‘Democrats.’ It does include a photo of Christie with Sea Bright Mayor Dina Long, a Democrat who has endorsed the governor for reelection.
State Senator Barbara Buono, the presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee dubbed “Dawn Quixote” by MSNBC’s Hardball with Chris Matthews responded with an email plea to her supporters asking for money.
I’ll keep this short. Chris Christie went up with his first ad of the election today. If we want to respond we’ve got to hit our goal by the May 6th deadline. There isn’t a moment to waste – Christie will spend millions to try and hide his failed record, and we can’t afford to fall behind.
Can you click here and donate today? Your contribution will be matched 2-1.
That means for every $1 you contribute today, our campaign will get $3. This could be a true game changer – we just have to hit our goal in the next six days. Your support will go a long way toward making sure the people of New Jersey get to meet the real Chris Christie. We need your help to stop Chris Christie.
Thanks for standing up and rejecting Chris Christie’s failed agenda.
Buono, who is receiving state matching funds for her primary campaign, is on the verge of being the first major party candidate in the history of the program not to qualify for the maximum state match. Since declaring her candidacy in December, Buono has raised an average of $29,000 per week. In order to ‘max out’ on state matching funds, she will have to raise $216,000 per week over the last six weeks of the primary campaign.
