Corzine launches radio ads on NJ budget

The gubernatorial campaign ad wars have begun in New Jersey. Gov. Jon S. Corzine's re-election campaign began running radio commercials Monday in which the Democratic governor talks about his $29.8 billion budget proposal.

The one-minute ads, airing on stations in the tri-state area, do not mention the governor's re-election campaign or his opponents.

The governor is heard saying New Jersey was the first state with a plan to respond to the global recession.

This is the Democratic governor's first media buy of the re-election campaign.

Conservative Republican Steve Lonegan has been spending about $26,000 a week on radio ads since late January.

Christopher Christie's campaign says the Republican candidate hasn't bought any radio spots yet.
