EDISON - The Republican Party has started selling merchandise branded with Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.)'s name.

Democrats say that the items, which include mugs, hooded sweatshirts and bumper stickers, are proof that the governor isn't paying enough attention to New Jersey.

A spokesman for Christie calls the criticism "just stupid." The spokesman went on to say "This governor has done more to focus on and change failed Democratic policies than anyone at the Democratic State Committee could conceive of in their worst nightmares."

He also said "the governor is a popular and effective public figure, so is it really surprising that someone would come up with such an idea?"

The merchandise runs anywhere from $2.95 for a bumper sticker to $45.95 for a hooded sweatshirt.
