Buono's Daughter Attacks Christie On Gay Marriage

Posted: Updated:

The gay daughter of New Jersey gubernatorial candidate Barbara Buono is criticizing Gov. Chris Christie for his opposition to same-sex marriage.

Tessa Bitterman sent an email to her mother's supporters Monday, saying she has a stake in the election because she is a gay American.

Buono, a Democrat, supports same-sex marriage. The governor, a Republican, does not.

Bitterman says Christie has misrepresented himself as a moderate. She says his record scares her, especially because he may run for national office.

Christie has a commanding lead over Buono in public opinion polls.

He is considering a run for president in 2016, and wants to rack up big numbers against the lesser-known Buono that could bolster his chances nationally.

Last year, Christie vetoed a bill establishing same-same marriage in New Jersey.
