Of course, the ad tells you to call Christie, not vote against him, because it is an “issue” ad by an independent group, not an ad by Corzine. PolitickerNJ has a good account of the group and its major ad buy:
The Mid-Atlantic Leadership Fund, a Washington-based organization with ties to Democrats, has purchased about $900,000 worth of New York and Philadelphia TV ads attacking GOP gubernatorial candidate Christopher Christie. According to filings with the Internal Revenue Service, the political organization, which will not need to disclose their donors until July, is run by Sean Sinclair, a Democratic strategist who ran Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s 2004 re-election campaign.
This kind of ad is very familiar in New Jersey politics. What do you think of it?
