Reporter Matt Friedman at http://www.politickernj.com/... PolitickerNJ.com says things are getting nasty and real personal between the two candidates in New Jersey's GOP gubernatorial primary, moderate establishment favorite Chris Christie and uberwingnut insurgent Steve Lonegan.
The circular firing squad known as the New Jersey Republican Party is resorting to weapons of mass destruction, almost literally. The latest episode involves Chris Christie's brother Todd Christie and Steve Lonegan's campaign manager Rick Shaftan. It seems Todd doesn't like some of the things Shaftan is saying about him and sent him a cryptic email with an implied personal threat that comes right out of a Martin Scorsese mafia film.
I have a feeling this story will take off and make a lot of people in the Christie campaign awfully uncomfortable. Check it out.
