Finance Minister Grant Robertson is accusing Simon Bridges of "electioneering" and introducing "the very worst of American politics'' to New Zealand.

The Opposition leader says the decision to set up a new watchdog to cost political parties' election promises is simply an attempt to try to "screw the scrum" against National.
