Democrats Hammer Chris Christie On GWB Jam

FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) -

New Jersey and national Democratic Party leaders marked the anniversary of lane closures near the George Washington Bridge on Monday with a round of public criticism of Republican Gov. Chris Christie.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz and local Democrats listed at a news conference a litany of complaints.

“Chris Christie’s gridlock reaches much farther than right here in Fort Lee. What Bridgegate did was raise the curtain on his culture of intimidation, bullying and the incompetence that pervades the Christie administration,” said Wasserman Schultz.

She sidestepped questions about whether the effort should be seen as a sign that Democrats were worried about Christie’s national prospects.
