The Republicans Governors Association is going to debut a 20-minute movie, called "A New Jersey," about the election of Chris Christie in New Jersey at a D.C. movie theater. Seriously.
Here's a preview of the short film that features very serious piano music, a forlorn President Obama, and chants of "Yes, we can" for Christie:
Here's the RGA's release:
RGA Announces Remember November: A New Jersey
The Republican Governors Association announced today that it will release a 20+ minute film highlighting the election of Governor Chris Christie and his first eight months in office. A preview of the film is available by visiting www.RememberNovember.com.
The film will debut Wednesday, September 8 at E Street Cinema in Washington, D.C. as well as online.
“Chris Christie’s campaign, transition and first eight months in office is a case study of how the RGA, our candidates and governors are reviving the Republican Party,” said RGA Executive Director Nick Ayers.
“Few people in January of 2009 gave us a chance to win a state Obama had just carried by nearly 15 points, and even fewer thought a Republican could fundamentally change a state dominated by Democrats,” Ayers continued. “But Chris Christie and the RGA adopted a ‘no excuses’ mentality and proved the pundits wrong.”
“Over the last 18 months, this model has shown the path forward for our Party,” Ayers said. “Americans are begging for political leaders who will reduce spending and impose fiscal sanity, and Chris Christie is delivering.”
When it is released, A New Jersey will be the longest in a series of videos reminding voters of the importance of this year’s elections. The previously released Remember November videos have been loaded more than two million times on the web.
“We have long said that our model to rebuild the party begins at the state level with governors’ races,” Ayers said. “The RGA’s $7 million investment in New Jersey combined with Chris Christie’s candidacy and his transformational leadership as governor is a preview of what we can accomplish if conservatives Remember November.”
