Democrats to launch ad reminding voters of Christie bridge scandal

New Jersey Governor Christie gives news conference in TrentonThe Democratic Party plans to launch a political ad on Monday marking the one-year anniversary of “Bridgegate” to remind voters of the scandal that ensnared top aides of Republican New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, a likely 2016 White House contender. During four days last September, access lanes to the George Washington Bridge, the busiest span in the United States, were abruptly shut down by Christie allies, apparently to punish a Democratic mayor who declined to endorse the governor’s re-election bid. The lane closures, which transit authorities first tried to justify as part of a traffic study, caused massive delays for commuters, school buses and emergency vehicles in the borough of Fort Lee, New Jersey, and across the bridge in New York City. The Democratic National Committee said it will seek to renew attention to the bridge lane closures by unveiling a 15-second mobile phone ad called “Gov. Chris Bridgegate Christie.” The ads will use “geo-targeting” to direct automated calls to voters living on either side of the bridge in northern New Jersey and across the East River in upper Manhattan.
