Corzine Ad Keeps Hammering Christie On Ashcroft Contracts

July 21, 2009 10:12 a.m.

Gov. Jon Corzine (D-NJ) has a new attack ad against his Republican opponent in this year’s election, former U.S. Attorney Chris Christie, continuing to hammer Christie for having awarded contracts to John Ashcroft and others. This new ad uses footage of Christie at a contentious House hearing from a few weeks ago, with Christie leaving the room:

“But when the time came for telling the truth, Christie got up and left,” the announcer says. “Chris Christie. Unbelievable.”

Christie currently leads Corzine in the polls, but the incumbent still has some cards to play by attacking his challenger’s credibility, and connecting him to the national Republican Party in this blue state — note the reference to “Bush Attorney General John Ashcroft.”
