Barbara joined Seton Hall shooting survivor Nakeisha Vanterpool (friend of Jessica Moore, who died during the 2010 incident) and her mother Leslie Wednesday to condemn Governor Christie's Friday night clandestine veto of commonsense gun legislation.
"On Friday evening, Chris Christie failed to lead," Barbara said. "He chose the NRA and the conservative base over families here in New Jersey."
Hey Daily Kos Community –
I wanted to start this diary off with a definition.
Hypocrisy: The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one's own behavior does not conform; pretense.
The reason I wanted to start this diary off with that definition is because it really defines Chris Christie. When he ran for governor, he talked about how he was a fiscal conservative who would cut waste out of the budget. Fast forward a few years, and New Jersey is dealing with the awful aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
Hi Daily Kos Community!
This week, Barbara announced her running mate, Milly Silva. We are proud to add Milly to Team Buono. Milly has lifted herself out of poverty to oversee an organization of thousands of workers where she negotiates multimillion dollar contracts and continues her life-long fight for working people. Leaders across New Jersey praised our choice.
Hi Daily Kos Community --
I am sure you know like I do that Chris Christie is going to run for President in 2016. Every time you look, it seems like he is at another political event.
My name is Jonathan, and I'm the campaign manager for Barbara Buono, also known as the Democrat running against Chris Christie.
Since I started working for Barbara I have frequently wondered – what goes on in Chris Christie's mind. Last week, while Chris Christie was killing spiders, Barbara put forth a common sense proposal to reduce gun violence and make all of our families safer.
