A local attorney officially announced his run against Chris Christie in the hopes of becoming the Republican Party's gubernatorial candidate.
"There's gotta be a better way, and the only way we can change things is the primary election process." Seth Grossman believes the best way to bring the change he feels the state needs is to officially announce his campaign for governor.
"People vote for Democrats expecting change, they vote for Republicans expecting change and nothing ever changes," said Grossman Tuesday, "the same people on the inside use their power to give special deals to themselves and their friends. All you have to do is look around and see what we have for everybody else."
Standing just blocks from Revel, the Somers Point attorney slammed Governor Chris Christie for providing tax incentives that helped finish Atlantic City's newest casino. Challenging Christie for the Republican nomination, Grossman, the founder of "Liberty and Prosperity" says a more conservative approach is needed. "If you want to have the kinda prosperity we had in the 1980s, we have to have the kind of government we had in the 1980s," he said, "with half the taxes, the spending, and half the debt we had today."
Grossman, who has been an outspoken critic of what he calls "bailout Republicans and big union Democrats," says he's not afraid of going up against Christie, despite the governor's high approval rating. "People like Chris Christie because he looks good on TV and he says the right stuff, but when you see what he's actually done, you realize that he's made a total mess of the state."
Grossman also made his announcement Tuesday in Newark.
