According to Politico, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has prepped a negative ad to air against his Democratic rival in the Garden State’s gubernatorial race, State Senator Barbara Buono. The television commercial will start airing next week and is part of an $800,000 ad buy that links Buono to former Gov. Jon Corzine and past tax increase votes.

“Meet Barbara Buono, Jon Corzine’s budget chair and now running for governor,” the commercial says. “Buono voted 154 times to raise our taxes.”

The ad buy would seem to be insurance for Christie, who, based on multiple recent polls, has a more than thirty point lead over Buono.
