Subject: Lonegan Campaign Chair Responds To Christie Web Ad
Please see the following statement from Lonegan for Governor Chairman Hank Butehorn addressing Chris Christie's Web Ad attacking Steve Lonegan.
"This ad mocking Steve Lonegan’s eyesight is a new low for the Christie campaign. Christie has avoided discussing issues and having debates with Steve Lonegan because he knows that when he does, Republican primary voters will see Christie for what he is: a big government liberal with ethics problems. Instead, he’s chosen to make ads that mock Steve’s vision.
We expect this kind of cheap shot from the liberals who run Saturday Night Live, not the liberals running the Christie campaign. Chris Christie should apologize immediately." - Hank Butehorn, Chairman, Lonegan for Governor, 5/6/09
