Adler's Election-Year Rhetoric Doesn't Match the Facts

Press Release

Asked to describe himself during this morning's radio debate on the Michael Smerconish Program, Congressman John Adler (NJ-3) twice called himself an "independent-minded centrist," a response that Republican challenger Jon Runyan today called election-year rhetoric that simply doesn't match the facts.

"As a long-time State Senator in Trenton, John Adler voted with Jon Corzine and Jim McGreevey 99% of the time, rubber-stamping fiscally irresponsible state budgets that saddled New Jersey residents with the highest taxes in the country and pushed state government to the brink of bankruptcy," said Runyan.

"As a Congressman in Washington, John Adler has voted with Nancy Pelosi more than 90% of the time and led our country down a dangerous path of runaway spending and unsustainable debt. His well-documented record in Trenton and Washington tells you a lot about the real John Adler -- and none of it backs up his election-year claim of being an independent-minded centrist."
