Gov. Christie Launches New Round of Forums

NJ governor schedules summer town halls, out-of-state fundraisers

Gov. Chris Christie headed to the shore Monday to talk tax cuts.

The Republican governor's office says he'll spend much of the summer holding public forums along the coast to bash Democratic lawmakers, who he says are blocking tax breaks.

Christie's first event was Monday’s visit to an outdoor pavilion in Manasquan.

Even though the state budget has been passed and signed, Christie and Democrats are still battling over it.

Both sides say there should be a tax cut in January. Democrats say they want to make sure the state is bringing in adequate revenue first.

Christie says relief should be promised to taxpayers now.

The governor has also added new campaign fundraising events for Mitt Romney to his summer schedule. Christie will travel to Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina on Tuesday.
