The Lonegan campaign released a radio ad today to answer the Christie campaign's ads that have been hammering Lonegan's record on taxes and his flat tax proposal:
For months, Chris Christie has hidden from my campaign.
But now I’m surging in the polls and they’re running some of the most ridiculous negative ads imaginable.
Let me answer their silly charges one by one.
First: Christie says I raised taxes. That’s a lie.
Those were the Democrats’ budgets and I cut them and stopped their tax increases.
Second: Christie attacks my flat tax and supports the current progressive system.
My flat tax will cut rates on single people earning thirty five thousand a year and up and couples earning seventy thousand a year or more. That’s most taxpayers.
Again, Christie’s ad is a lie.
Third: I’ll provide real property tax relief.
Not through phony election year rebates but by reducing regulations, ending COAH, and distributing the state’s income tax equally on a per student basis.
Chris Christie has no plan and no clue.
It’s time for a conservative change.
That’s why I’m running for Governor, and I hope I’ve earned your vote.
Paid for by Lonegan for Governor. Lonegan dot com
