Chris Christie’s administration is firing back at insults N.J. Senate Pres. Stephen Sweeney flung at the guv over the weekend.
Christie himself hasn’t responded to Sweeney’s calling him a “bully and a punk,” but his spokeswoman gave an official response today.
Sweeney took aim at the governor over the weekend, saying Christie’s last-minute budget vetoes were for political purposes and will hurt the state’s most vulnerable residents, according to a report on the Associated Press.
Spokeswoman Maria Cornella said today Sweeney’s remarks are “inappropriate and disrespectful,” and that Christie is still ready to work with him.
