NJ-04: Listen to New Zeitz ad on Smith's Virginia Residency

Today, the Zeitz for Congress campaign unveiled a new radio advertisement titled "Eight Nights." The ad draws attention to Chris Smith's failure to live in New Jersey, having spent only eight nights in the state during 2007, and the recent revelation that Smith received nearly $80,000 in tuition breaks reserved only for official Virginia residents.

You can listen to the ad here.

"After twenty-eight years in Congress, Chris Smith has become a creature of Washington. The voters I speak with are shocked and outraged when they learn Chris Smith refuses to live in New Jersey and does not pay our high property taxes. For many of them, learning Smith receives in-state tuition discounts in Virginia is the final straw," said Josh Zeitz. "It's not too much to ask that our representative in Congress actually lives in New Jersey."

Key Facts:

   * Chris Smith spent only eight days in 2007. [PolitickerNJ 4/28/08]
    * Chris Smith is the only member of the New Jersey delegation to not own a home in New Jersey. [PolitickerNJ 4/28/08] He's saved nearly $60,000 in property taxes by living in Virginia.
    * Chris Smith receives in-state tuition benefits reserved only for official Virginia residents. [Politico 10/20/08]

Josh needs your help to defeat Chris Smith. Please consider volunteering as well as contributing to the campaign. To put it bluntly, the more money we can raise the more play this ad gets on the radio, and the more undecided voters we can reach. We also need volunteers to help get out the vote.

Re: NJ-04: Listen to New Zeitz ad
I heard Josh Zeitz on Air America a couple of weeks ago and donated to his campaign (sorry I can't volunteer, I live in KS!), simply because his opponent is a disgusting piece of trash.
Did Smith really try to have gays banned from being first responders?
Good luck!
