Dems target Christie in 2 new ads


TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — National Democrats are targeting New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie as he begins his new role as chairman of the Republican Governors Association more than a month after his re-election.

The Democratic National Committee and a Democratic super PAC have released online ads attacking the Republican governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate.

The DNC released its ad Thursday as Christie makes his first fundraising appearance with Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin.

The ad criticizes Christie for focusing on re-electing governors like Fallin. The ad claims she opposes the DREAM Act for illegal residents, cut women’s health care funding and denied benefits to the same-sex partners of service members.

The Washington, D.C.-based American Bridge for the 21st Century PAC ad accuses Christie of flip-flopping on a bill granting in-state tuition to illegal residents.
