NJ Assemblyman Backs Off 'Go to Hell' Comment to Christie

Assemblyman Jason O'Donnell

 A northern New Jersey assemblyman is having second thoughts after saying he'll tell Gov. Chris Christie to "go to hell.''

Assemblyman Jason O'Donnell told supporters in Bayonne on Election Night: ``We will tell this governor -- who has decided to wage war on the middle class, on civil servants, on teachers, on the elderly and on the disabled -- to go to hell.''

Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak fired back today, saying O'Donnell's comments showed a "lack of interest in bipartisan solutions."

The Jersey Journal reported O'Donnell issued a statement Wednesday saying he got caught up in the moment and perhaps he could have better expressed himself.

The Bayonne public safety direct who was appointed to Anthony Chiappone’s Assembly seat, cruised to victory in Tuesday's vote.
