Integrity NJ, a super PAC with close ties to former Gov. Chris Christie, is putting $2 million behind the launch of a new TV ad that savages Sen. Bob Menendez.
“Bob Menendez was indicted by President Obama’s Justice Department, ‘severely admonished’ by his own Senate colleagues and even had to be investigated by the FBI on underage prostitution allegations. Enough is enough. Bob Menendez has disgraced his office and our state. New Jersey, we can do a lot better than Bob Menendez,” said Pete Sheridan, executive director of the super PAC.
Integrity NJ is headed by Sheridan and Phil Cox, both of whom have close ties to Christie.
Cox, the group’s chairman and senior advisor, was executive director of the Republican Governors Association when Christie was chairman of the group. He also headed America Leads, a super PAC founded to back Christie’s 2016 presidential run.
Sheridan, formerly the executive director of the New Jersey GOP, worked on both of Christie’s gubernatorial campaigns and served on Christie’s transition out of the governorship. Sheridan is the PAC’s executive director.
