WASHINGTON (CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine's campaign released a new ad Tuesday that ties Republican opponent Chris Christie to former President George W.Bush, and to conservative culture war stands on social issues and gun control.
"What can you expect from Chris Christie? A governor who'll repeat the failed Bush economics," the announcer says.
The 30-second spot title "Expect," points to Christie's positions on abortion, stem cell research, and gun laws - a laundry list of Corzine's campaign trail attacks on his GOP challenger. "A governor who doesn't share our values. Chris Christie. Wrong when it matters most," the ad concludes.
A Farleigh Dickinson University survey released earlier this month suggests Corzine and Christie are now neck-and-neck among registered voters, 44 percent to 43 percent, with 9 percent undecided.
Voters in New Jersey head to the polls on November 3.
