“I think it’s funny that the party of Robert Menendez, Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Corrine Brown is issuing guidance on running campaigns based on ethics,” said Chris Grant, Collins’ campaign consultant. Menendez is about to go to trial for alleged fraud and bribery, and Brown, a former congresswoman, was found guilty of misusing funds.
