Christie Whitman should just become a Democrat after she backs Joe Biden tonight, New Jersey GOP State Chairman Doug Steinhardt said tonight.
“After she completes her endorsement of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris tonight, she should complete her change of party designation form tomorrow,” Steinhardt said. “We’ll gladly donate the postage stamp.”
Whitman, a former two-term Republican governor of New Jersey, will endorse Biden in an address to the Democatic National Convention this evening
“Politics is about making choices. Tonight, Governor Whitman made the choice to ‘appear’ at the Democratic National Convention, speaking on the same evening as Socialist Bernie Sanders,” said Steinhardt. “I don’t begrudge her that right, after all, this is America. But, no one in America should ever think that Christie Whitman represents the values of the New Jersey Republican Party.”
In addition to Whitman, three other prominent Republicans will endorse Biden tonight: former Ohio Gov. and presidential candidate John Kasich; former New York Rep. Susan Molinari (R-New York); and former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman, the co-finance chair of Chris Christie’s 2016 presidential campaign.
“Governor Whitman can argue that she’s putting country over party, but she endorses a Democratic Party that supports lawlessness, treats the U.S. Constitution as an obstacle, would defund and disband our police departments, makes our communities less safe, and makes our state and country less affordable,” said Steinhardt.
