EDISON - Republican Gov. Chris Christie returned to New Jersey from the presidential campaign trail to deal with a potentially dangerous snowstorm that has much of the state under a blizzard warning.

Christie said Friday he was canceling campaign events Friday and Saturday because of the weather, but New Jersey's first lady Mary Pat would stay in New Hampshire.

"I want to make sure that the people of my state feel safe and secure and know that despite the fact that I've been on the phone seven or eight times in the past two days to get updates…they'll feel better if I'm there,” Christie said while at a campaign event Friday morning.

Christie was scheduled to remain in New Hampshire through the weekend, when the bulk of the storm was expected to dump up to 18 inches of snow on parts of New Jersey.

Christie's decision comes as he criticizes GOP rivals, like Sen. Marco Rubio, for missing keys votes in the Senate.
