Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick is keeping course on his crusade against delays at the Motor Vehicle Commission.

In a recorded segment posted by Assembly Republicans Wednesday, Bramnick hammered MVC Chief Administrator Sue Fulton over testimony she gave before the Assembly Budget Committee in mid-September.

“She never figured it out,” Bramnick said. “We have people waiting six, seven hours outside of Motor Vehicles, so obviously they failed, so they never figured anything out except how to keep people waiting.”

Bramnick is one of several high-ranking New Jersey Republicans considering a challenge to Gov. Phil Murphy next year.

Former Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli has already launched his campaign, and Republican State Chairman Doug Steinhardt and Monmouth County Sheriff and Republican Chairman Sean Golden are considering bids.

While Steinhardt and Ciattarelli have jabbed Murphy over the MVC’s hours-long lines in the past, neither has taken to the issue as much as Bramnick has.

That may allow Bramnick to speak on the issue from a position of power during the primary should he eventually decide to mount a bid.

“Reopening day didn’t work out,” Bramnick said. “That’s the understatement of the century. It was a disaster, and it’s intended to be a disaster.”
