WATERTOWN, Mass. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday called Democratic U.S. Senate challenger Elizabeth Warren a “partisan, liberal elite” and said Republican Sen. Scott Brown would do a better job of working across the aisle in Washington.
“She won’t even look across the aisle, let alone reach across the aisle,” Christie said at a campaign stop in Watertown. “And yet, you’ve got a senator here who has served this state extraordinarily well by making sure that he talks with everyone: Republicans, Democrats, independents!”
Christie, who has been a frequent surrogate for Republican candidates this year, called Brown a “problem solver.”
Warren also has a big name coming to town, but not one from the political world.
Singer-songwriter James Taylor will perform at a concert to support Warren’s campaign Wednesday night at Boston’s Colonial Theater.
Brown trails Warren by five points in the latest WBUR poll.
