    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has launched his first television commercial of this year's gubernatorial campaign.
    The Christie campaign is spending $1.2 million to air the 60-second spot in the New York and Philadelphia media markets.
    The commercial, titled "Jersey Proud," touts Christie's leadership and bipartisanship during his first term.
    Polls show the incumbent Republican leading Democratic state Sen. Barbara Buono by 30 points.
    Buono responded to Christie's ad buy with an email to supporters asking for donations, noting that contributions would be matched 2 to 1 because she is receiving public matching funds.
    Buono has not yet produced a TV commercial. However, an outside group called One New Jersey has run ads targeting the governor.
    Neither Christie nor Buono face a serious primary threat.
