Hi Daily Kos Community --

I am sure you know like I do that Chris Christie is going to run for President in 2016.  Every time you look, it seems like he is at another political event.

Here is the thing though – if we don't stop him now, we will have to stop him in the cornfields of Iowa.  And after all that he has done to lie to the people of New Jersey with his false portrayals of himself as a moderate, we will have to go all in to stop him from getting to the White House.  

That is why we made our first ad of the general election, and as Barbara Buono's campaign manager, I wanted to make sure you saw the ad.

Christie is about as right wing as they come.  While the rest of the nation was celebrating the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, Christie was stubbornly digging in his heels because of his personal beliefs on the matter. It's just disgusting to think about how many New Jerseyans are denied the right to marry the one they love because of the cowardly stance Christie has taken.  Barbara and her family know just how much this hurts LGBT New Jerseyans – her daughter is gay and made a video to talk about the hateful stance Christie has taken.  

No matter what, we can't get rid of a political monster like Christie without the support of the national netroots.  

Can you chip in $3 to help us keep fighting Christie so that we won't have to fight him in 2016?

I will be here for the next half hour to answer any questions you have about the race.

Thanks - Jonathan

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
