WASHINGTON (CNN)– With 42 days before New Jersey residents head to the polls, Gov. Jon Corzine's campaign released a new ad Wednesday blasting Republican opponent Chris Christie for throwing "his weight around" as U.S. attorney to gain special treatment in the state.

The ad, titled "If", is the latest attempt by the Corzine campaign to accuse Christie of using his position to gain special treatment. It debuts the same day the Democrat's campaign unveiled billboards statewide looking to capitalize on President Obama's popularity there.
The billboards feature Corzine standing behind Obama at a podium. "Keep it going" the billboard reads. "Obama Corzine."
New Jersey residents will head to the polls on November 3.
