Governor Whitman’s speech at the Democratic National Convention:

August 17, 2020

Comment from NJGOP Chairman Doug Steinhardt on Governor Whitman’s speech at the Democratic National Convention:

“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.  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.

“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.

“After she completes her endorsement of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris tonight, she should complete her change of party designation form tomorrow. We’ll gladly donate the postage stamp.”
