A local attorney officially announced his run against Chris
Christie in the hopes of becoming the Republican Party's gubernatorial
"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.
