Bush super PAC goes after Christie in Iowa
Cannibalism sets in on the "Moderates"
The candidate with a massive 4% in the polls
attacks the candidate with 3%.
(Roll Call) - The super PAC supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is going after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
The pro-Bush Right to Rise super PAC is sending out mailers questioning Christie's record as governor in its first direct attack at Christie in Iowa.
"Get the facts on Christie's record as governor," the mailer reads, continuing that under the New Jersey governor "New Jersey's credit rating has been downgraded a record nine times" and that Christie "embraced a massive expansion of Obamacare."
The mailer, sent out to voters in Iowa, is yet another signal that the larger Bush political apparatus wants to prevent the New Jersey governor from leapfrogging Bush in either Iowa or New Hampshire, where Christie has enjoyed a polling bump.
Both candidates lag far behind the pack in Iowa. A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll of the Iowa Republican primary found Bush at 4 percent and Christie at 3, far behind Sen. Ted Cruz at 28 percent leading the field, followed by Donald Trump at 24 percent.
