TRENTON - Those New Jersey conservatives who believe that Republican Gov. Christie is a tax-and-spend liberal may soon have an alternative in the June gubernatorial primary.
Seth Grossman, a Somers Point lawyer and Linwood resident, was elected to the Atlantic County Freeholder Board and Atlantic City Council in the 1980s. In 2003, he founded an organization, Liberty and Prosperity, that espouses many tea-party principles.
"Chris Christie is not a conservative, never was a conservative, and all he wants is the power and celebrity," Grossman said in an interview.
Specifically, Grossman cites Christie's "corporate bailouts," such as the tax breaks promised for the struggling Revel casino in Atlantic City. Grossman announced his candidacy Tuesday in front of Revel.
