Senior PLPs reportedly felt that displaying Christie’s photo nation-wide would hurt rather than help the PLP’s election campaign.
They reasoned that Christie’s reputation as a weak and indecisive leader was damaging to the PLP’s image.
Christie sent PLP chief graphic artist to Miami with orders to get posters of Christie printed…and was told it was “too late” to produce the posters.
Christie feels the no poster strategy will cause the PLP be viewed as Leaderless, Chiefless and set to remain Powerless as the party appears to be unfit to govern.
Meanwhile the streets of all 38 seats are “painted red” with posters of FNM Leader Ingraham. The PM said: "If the PLP ever get around to putting up posters of Perry the words on them should be: "PLP: UNPROVEN LEADERSHIP.”
