Corzine Makes Clear His Opposition To Gas Tax Holiday

New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D) has come out against a gas tax holiday, despite his support for Hillary Clinton, who has backed the measure.

He sent out a release Monday morning making clear his opposition to the plan, which has also been pushed by John McCain but dismissed by Barack Obama. In the release, Corzine called a gas tax holiday "not my favorite plan." He added that reporters had misconstrued statements he had made about it during a Monday television interview.

"I went on to discuss the differences between the two [McCain and Clinton's] competing plans," Corzine said in the release. "Somehow this was construed by several enterprising reporters as a change in my position on a gas tax holiday, which it is not."

Here's a transcript of Corzine's comments on CNBC, provided by his press office:
