The Christie Drag: Toxic Record Marks NJ Governor’s Final State of State Address

NJ GOP can’t outrun Christie’s failed record 

Today, New Jersey voters need to endure one last State of the State address from GOP Gov. Chris Christie. 

But for the Republican candidates vying to replace him, the struggle is just beginning.

As Christie delivers his final State of the State address in Trenton this afternoon, the “Christie Republicans” running for governor in 2017 will get a sharp reminder of the “long odds” they face in the wake of Christie’s disastrous record as governor.

No matter which Republican enters New Jersey’s race for governor, they’ll be inheriting a record from their GOP incumbent that includes:

“New Jersey voters are relieved that Chris Christie’s disastrous two terms in office are almost over,” said DGA Communications Director Jared Leopold. “But with a historically bad approval rating, 10 credit downgrades, and a sluggish New Jersey economy, Christie’s toxic record is sure to saddle any Republican running to replace him. New Jersey voters are ready for a change in Trenton, and we look forward to electing a Democratic governor in November.”
