New Jersey government shuts down in budget standoff; Then Gov. Christie has beach to himself and family
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his family had the beach to themselves Saturday after a budget deadlock closed state-run tourist attractions to the public.
“That’s just the way it goes,” Christie said Saturday in response to a reporter’s questions during a news conference. “Run for governor and you can have a residence.”
“That’s where my family is sleeping, so that’s where I’ll sleep tonight,” Christie said. “When I have a choice between sleeping with my family and sleeping alone, I generally like to sleep where my family is.”
