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.
