NJ Democratic Committee chair: Christie misrepresented facts at RNC

New Jersey Democratic Committee Chair John Wisniewski offered a counter-point to Gov. Chris Christie's keynote speech at the Republican National Convention last night.

Wisniewski says that Gov. Christie misrepresented the facts regarding balancing the budget without tax cuts. He says property taxes are up 20 percent statewide because of the way the governor balanced the budget.

Overall, Wisniewski says the governor's speech expressed a reluctance to fully support the Republican candidate.

"It took 16 minutes for him to mention Mitt Romney at an event that was geared toward Mitt Romney," said Wisniewski. "This speech was all about Chris Christie."
