TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie may be thinking the upcoming governor’s race will come down to a choice between him and Jon Corzine.
Though the former Democratic governor doesn’t even live in New Jersey anymore, Christie keeps bringing up the name of the opponent he unseated in 2009.
The governor referred to a prior Democratic budget as the “Corzine-Buono budget” on Monday night’s “Ask the Governor” program on Townsquare Media. On Tuesday, the Republican State Committee announced a new web site: http://corzinedemocrats.com .
The site features a photo of Corzine with Sen. Barbara Buono, who is running against Christie in November. There’s also a countdown clock that ticks off the amount of time “Corzine Democrats” don’t act on Christie’s proposed tax cut.
Corzine is being sued for his dealings with MF Global Holdings.
