TRENTON, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — 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 website, called 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.
Christie held his 106th town hall meeting in Bergenfield on Tuesday, where he continued his push for a 10-percent tax cut proposal, currently being blocked by so-called “Corzine Democrat” legislators.
“If they don’t pass this tax cut in the next 68 days, then you know what they were doing all along. They were lying to you,” Christie told reporters, including WCBS 880’s Peter Haskell.
