CONCORD – Today, the New Hampshire Democratic Party released the following statement in response to Chris Christie’s latest tour of New Hampshire.
“Chris Christie can try to use Tom Brady as a shield in order to avoid answering questions about his record, but with an economic record as abysmal as his and the Bridgegate scandal unfolding, that’s not going to work,” said Lizzy Price, NHDP Communications Director. “Chris Christie’s dysfunctional leadership led to nine credit downgrades for New Jersey, some of the worst job creation numbers in the country, and now he’s in a court battle to avoid paying New Jersey workers the pensions he promised. On top of all that, he arrogantly insists he has nothing to do with the recent indictments of his close allies and staff who manufactured the Bridgegate crisis. By running up to New Hampshire, Chris Christie might think he can avoid his failed record and connections to the Bridgegate scandal. But Granite Staters aren’t stupid – they know Chris Christie has driven his state into the ground and they’ll give him the same terrible reaction his constituents have.”
