If Republicans did this, it would make headlines all over showing the kind of dirty politics these angry white men play in order to keep their hold on power. Jim Geraghty reports that, “Democrats have so much of a vested interest in independent Christopher Daggett splitting the anti-incumbent vote that they are putting resources into promoting him.”
The Democratic State Committee now admits paying for a robocall to Somerset County voters that slams Republican Chris Christie and promotes independent gubernatorial candidate Christopher Daggett.
A Democratic spokeswoman says the party’s chairman, Joe Cryan, was not aware of the robocalls when he denied that the state committee had anything to do with them yesterday afternoon.
If this gets out, it can only help Chris Christie, but the question is whether or not New Jersey (as well as Philadelphia and New York) media will pick this up.
This news merely confirms something I mentioned as just reported in a previous post. Seems like Democrats are pulling every tactic from their bag of tricks to pull out a victory in the Garden State. And Obama’s right there elbow-to-elbow with the New Jersey Governor who has presided over a meltdown of his state’s economy since taking office four years ago.
Guess that “new kind of politics” Obama promised in his campaign last year is just making Chicago politics national.
