Christie Vacations in Puerto Rico as NJ Digs Out From Storm

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and his family escaped the cold and snow left behind by this week's massive snowstorm to enjoy a weekend in sunny Puerto Rico.

The Republican governor was spotted Friday poolside at a San Juan resort, reports CNN,  and his spokesman said the state leader is on a brief vacation.

"After the storm had passed, the governor left the state this morning for a long weekend away with his family, and he will return Monday night," said spokesman Colin Reed.

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno is running the government business this weekend until Christie comes back from his trip.

This isn't Christie's first trip out of state to stay out of a winter blast. In 2010, Democrats roundly criticized the governor for not cutting short a family trip to Florida, where they stayed at Disney World when a huge blizzard hit. That time, Guadagno was also out of state.
