Popular New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) came out swinging for Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Hill on Friday.
Gov. Christie made the trip to Missoula in order to help raise money for Hill, Montana’s former Congressman.
The Missoulian offered this coverage:
In his remarks, Christie said he took his own state from 50th in job creation to fourth place, after eight years of Democratic-dominated state government.
“This is not just about political strategy,” he said. “It’s not just public relations. The biggest difference is we’re right and they’re wrong. This is not the time to be polite. It’s the time to be direct. You have 88 days, and your job is far from finished.”
Meanwhile, as Chuck Johnson reports, Republican gubernatorial candidate Rick Hill raised $207,205 in the period, compared with Democrat Steve Bullock’s $91,230.
“Thanks to the generosity and support of Montanans in the last month, we outraised Steve Bullock over 2-to-1,” said Hill’s campaign manager, Brock Lowrance. “It’s obvious where the momentum is in this race. People across the state are embracing Rick’s message of less government, lower taxes and more jobs for Montanans.”
