The war of words between U.S. Sen. Frank Lautenberg and Gov. Christie over the governor’s plan to realign New Jersey’s public universities is showing no signs of a cease-fire.

On Monday, the Democratic senator from New Jersey criticized Republican Christie over a report that was commissioned by Rowan University on how to handle the regulatory and public relations issues surrounding the proposed merger of Rowan with Rutgers-Camden two months before the official announcement of the plan.

“This secret report shows that the fix was in long before the merger was even presented to the public,” Lautenberg said in a statement. “The people of South Jersey don’t want propaganda and marketing. They want substantive answers.”
