TRENTON, NJ – Former New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman has been on an anti-President Trump crusade since the man took office. Early on in the 2016 election cycle, she had many allies in the New Jersey Republican Party cheering alongside her, including Jack Ciattarelli, who is running for Governor in 2021. These days, Jack has laid off on the Anti-Trumper rhetoric and is even pushing himself as the Trump guy, but Whitman has become the Jane Fonda of the Republican Party.
Whitman spoke at the 2020 Democrat National Convention to endorse Democrat Joe Biden. She claimed about how she comes from a long lineage of Republicans, who now are definitely rolling in their graves.
“This isn’t about Republican or Democrat, it’s about a person,” Whitman said. “A person decent enough, stable enough to get our economy back on track. A person who can work with everyone. Donald Trump isn’t that person. Joe Biden is.”
The New Jersey Republican party in general is just shy of left these days, but for one of their elder stateswomen to go into the capital city of the Democrat party and help that party launch attacks against the Republican, well, maybe her new name should be Milwaukee Jane.
