Clinton Blocking Christie's Bridge To White House?

Posted: Updated:
Fort Lee, New Jersey (My9NJ) - Unless you were stuck in traffic somewhere in North Jersey, chances are you have heard about Chris Christie’s current scandal surrounding his administration and the blocking of lanes on the George Washington Bridge. Whether or not you stand by the governor during this controversy, no one can deny that this scandal has left an “open window” for dissenters to attack the governor and his credibility to run for president in 2016.

Ever since the US Attorney started investigating Christie’s administration, polls are beginning to show a negative impact on the overall reputation of the governor. This has left many people seizing the political opportunity to change the momentum of this scandal in favor of Hillary Rodham Clinton; another potential frontrunner in the 2016 presidential elections. A Super-Pac called American Bridge has formed with the sole purpose of launching advertisements that attack the credibility of what many people consider Clinton’s greatest competitor in 2016.

Chris Harris, Senior advisor to American Bridge discussed his groups’ intentions to sway public opinion. He admits that his group is a partisan group founded by Clinton supporters but says they are not attacking Christie; they are just holding him accountable.

“Since the beginning, we have focused on holding Republicans accountable for what they say and do. That goes from house races, to state senators to whomever and has nothing to do with any specific Republican or Democrat,” he said.

A series of commercials produced by this Super-Pac show Governor Christie and compare past comments with recent comments in an attempt to show national voters that the governor is rarely ever honest. When asked about what the Super-Pac would do if Christie is cleared of all wrong doing, it was clear that this campaign was not about Christie’s guilt or innocence, but about convincing voters that he is not worthy of a future elected office.
