Christie In Manahawkin: 'This Is Where I Intend To Spend The Rest Of My Life'

In Manahawkin, the governor makes first public appearance since 'Bridgegate' scandal broke

He may want to work in Washington D.C., but does Gov. Chris Christie really want to move out of New Jersey?

Christie made his first public appearance since the "Bridgegate" lane-closure scandal broke last week, appearing in Manahawkin Thursday to announce an $817 million housing recovery program in one of the communities hardest hit by Superstorm Sandy.

But the governor, who many have cast as a potential Republican nominee for president in 2016, also spoke of his affection of New Jersey and told the gathering that: "This is where I intend to spend the rest of my life."

Christie abruptly cancelled the same event last week - with less than 20 minutes notice - after the "Bridgegate" story broke.

Disgusted but not surprised. I would have attended the Manahawkin event if there was more notice - less than 24 hours. From what I hear - Sandy victims stood while Christie's entourage sat. Great photo op - letters followed on RREM grants. Shallow attempt. Hope NJ citizens get a special prosecutor to ENFORCE NJ laws - no faith in NJ AG at this point.

These appearances are scheduled during the week and during working hours for a very good reason.

"'This Is Where I Intend To Spend The Rest Of My Life" By saying that he knows he has no chance to live in the White House, why even try and waste his time.
