WASHINGTON — The Democratic Party is trying to derail New Jersey Republican Governor Chris Christie’s 2016 presidential prospects by running ads on “BridgeGate.”
Reuters reported that the ads will run on the one-year anniversary of the scandal.
Christie and his New Jersey Governor’s office denied any wrongdoing or involvement, but the liberal media continues to harp on this issue. Some outlets, like the liberal website Slate.com, feel that the scandal killed his 2016 presidential ambitions. Christie himself said the scandal will not hurt a possible 2016 presidential bid and other reports say that New Jersey’s budget battle will hurt Christie in 2016 more than “BridgeGate.”
As Obama’s approval ratings hit historic lows and Senate Democrats are facing tough re-election battles in several states, the Democratic Party ad campaign may seem out of touch as Americans cannot find jobs or keep a job. Even liberal statistician Nate Silver, who moved his FiveThirtyEight blog and staff to ESPN from the New York Times, said that the GOP has good odds to retake the Senate majority this fall.
