New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) joked Wednesday that his favorite thing about being governor was “going to New York City” because he now gets to avoid all the traffic.
Asked by an eight-year-old girl at a town hall in Montville what his favorite thing about being governor was, Christie said he had a fun answer and a serious answer.
“When you’re governor, they close the Lincoln Tunnel for you,” Christie said. “And you get to drive right through. No traffic. It’s the best. I love going to New York now. I used to hate it…. that’s the most fun thing on the fun side about being governor.”
Christie added that this might be why his wife wants him to win re-election.
On the serious side, Christie said, “every day this job gives me the chance to do something great.”
