“Chris Christie may have the lowest ratings of any governor in any state in the past 20 years, but even that didn’t stop him and his family from soaking up the sun on a New Jersey beach closed to the public because of a government shutdown.
“I don’t apologize for it. I don’t back away from it,” Christie said late Monday as the New Jersey state government moved toward agreeing on a budget. “I think my poll numbers show I don’t care about political optics.”
Christie’s comments came 24 hours after pictures published by the Star-Ledger newspaper showed Christie and his family lounging in front of a beachside residence at Island Beach State Park, which is given to the governor to use while in office. “Let’s be really clear: That’s our residence and we have a right to be there whenever we want to be there,” Christie said.”*
