Another Sad Chapter in the Schmid Campaign Trainwreck
 
.
This week it was reported that Stephanie Schmid’s campaign published a blatantly false mailer on Congressman Smith’s bipartisan record of success in Congress. When contacted about this issue, Schmid hung up on the reporter.
.
This sad chapter comes after months of turmoil for Schmid, involving a universally panned attack on the congressman’s work on lyme disease, the revelation that she wasn’t telling the truth about her experience working in the Smith office, and several very serious campaign finance law violations. 
.
NJGOP executive director Phil Valenziano issued the following statement:
.
“Congressman Smith has a bipartisan record of problem solving all of New Jersey should be proud of, so it’s not surprising that the Schmid campaign has to resort to falsehoods to try and tarnish him. The Schmid campaign has been a trainwreck since its inception, and there’s no sign of that changing as we close in on Election Day, with this new sad chapter of fabrication. New Jerseyans in the fourth district have a leader who delivers on issues important to them, and all the falsehoods, campaign finance violations, and bizzare, flailing attacks from the Schmid campaign won’t change that. We look forward to another strong win by Congressman Smith. “
