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.  

Chris Christie punted on the tough issues - our proposal includes smaller magazines, universal background checks, and face-to-face sales of all ammunition. Gun safety advocates & victims of gun violence could not be clearer - less bullets means more lives are saved.

Christie’s “plan” offers shallow solutions. That isn’t right.  And that is why Barbara started running against Christie -- she knew New Jersey could do better.   Barbara knew it wouldn’t be easy to take on a YouTube sensation when she started running this race but that didn’t stop her.

And she won’t back down now. But Barbara can't take on Chris Christie and help pass meaningful gun safety reform without the help of the Daily Kos Community.  

Can you click here to add your name and send Chris Christie a message that it's time for real gun safety reform?

Christie loves to go on late night TV shows and cut up with the host. But one thing he has failed to do is lead. Under Governor Christie, New Jersey boasts the highest unemployment rate in the region, foreclosures are on the rise, and New Jersey’s property taxes are the highest in the nation.

These shocking facts are the ones that Christie wants us to forget about. He has already gone up on TV with a dishonest ad that doesn't tell the real truth about his record.  But we decided to do a little parody of his ad and tell the truth about his failed record.  

It doesn't matter if you are from California or New Jersey - you know that Chris Christie has to go.  If we get behind Barbara, we've got a real chance to win this.  But she needs our help now if we want to stop Christie.

Talk to you soon!


PS: I know you might be sick of getting asked for money, but we're facing millions of dollars that Christie has raised.  If you could click here and chip in $3 it would go such a long way to helping make sure we stop Christie.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
