(CNN) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will release a new web video Monday that claims his opponent, Democratic gubernatorial nominee Barbara Buono, has been a failed fiscal steward of the state while serving as a key member of the New Jersey legislature.
The video, which CNN was provided a preview of, tries to tie Buono to former Democratic Gov. Jon Corzine. It specifically criticizes Buono for being responsible, in part, for tax increases, job losses and budget shortfalls during Corzine's administration.
The video will be released just hours before Buono officially announces her running mate for the November election.
Public polling shows that Christie, a Republican, has a sizable lead over Buono
