Gov. Christie Boosts Jersey Shore on 'Today'

Friday, 24 May 2013 08:30 AM

 

 New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that 80 percent of his state's shore will look the same this year as it did last year despite being walloped by Superstorm Sandy.

Christie has been spending the week promoting shore tourism, but he got a national platform Friday when he appeared on NBC's "Today" show.

Christie says that businesses are reopening, but tough decisions remain ahead for owners of homes that were devastated.

Christie also says he'll welcome President Barack Obama, who's scheduled to visit the shore next week. Christie was criticized by some fellow Republicans last year for working so closely with Obama just before the president was re-elected.
