New Jersey Republican State chairman Doug Steinhardt criticized Cory Booker today for seeking national fame while ignoring New Jersey.
Steinhardt’s condemnation of Booker strikes a familiar tone to New Jerseyans who watched Democrats bash then-Gov. Chris Christie for his out of state travels in pursuit of the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.
“I’d like to welcome Hollywood’s Senator, Cory Booker back to New Jersey,” Steinhardt said. “In New Jersey, we’re no stranger to watching Senator Booker chase national fame and fandom, but we’re also familiar with his failed record.”
Steinhardt called Booker “an absentee Senator who has left his state dead last in what we get back from Washington.”
“His agenda of socialized healthcare and out of control taxes will put our country at the back of the pack too,” said Steinhardt.
