Gov. Christie quick to play the blame game
Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) can blame Tuesday’s election results on “redistricting” all he wants, but we think he should probably look at his own policies first…
Michael Muller, executive director of the Democrats’ legislative campaign effort, said the issue of women’s health played heavily into the 2nd Legislative District, where state Sen. Jim Whelan (D-Atlantic) fended off a challenge by Assemblyman Vince Polistina (R-Atlantic) by a relatively comfortable margin.
“We saw in 2010 Tom Goodwin go down against Linda Greenstein primarily over the issue of women’s health,” said Muller. “We saw it again with Vince Polistina. How many Republican legislators are going to have to go down before Chris Christie gets it on women’s health care."
While we can’t answer for Christie, you can bet we’ll be there to remind him: women’s health care will not take a back seat in New Jersey.
