Christie speaks at chamber dinner in DC

WASHINGTON - Gov. Chris Christie ripped Democrats in the Legislature as misguided for trying to legalize gay marriage and for their criticism of his income tax plan during a speech at the state's annual Chamber of Commerce congressional dinner.

Christie told the chamber audience he's going to continue his push to improve New Jersey by doing the things that "make sense."

While the dinner was intended as a way for state business leaders to network with their congressional delegation, only three GOP congressmen attended and none spoke.

U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, a Democrat, attended a cocktail hour before the dinner but didn't stay for the speech.
