    Gov. Chris Christie was greeted by cheering staff as he walked through the front doors of the New Jersey Statehouse Thursday for the first time since winning a landslide re-election.

    Staff members lined the halls and applauded as Christie returned to work full-time after winning a second term by 22 points.
    The possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate shook hands and was kissed by well-wishers. He also spoke with a Girl Scout troop touring the historic building.
    The governor had no public events on his schedule. He met privately with Republican state senators who were choosing a leader on Thursday.
    At his first postelection event in Union City, in Hudson County, Christie said he would continue to push education reforms so that all students can attend high-quality schools.
