EDISON - Gov. Chris Christie says that New Jersey is prepared to face a snowstorm anticipated to arrive in the state Saturday.

However, he says that he will not cancel his presidential campaign plans in order to return to New Jersey. Instead, he says that Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno will be more than able to lead the state.

“The lieutenant governor is [in New Jersey] and she is handling things on the ground there.  If I need to go back I would, but at this point it is too speculative to know,” Christie stated while campaigning in New Hampshire.

Most of the Garden State is under a blizzard watch in effect through Sunday morning.

The News 12 New Jersey Weather Center anticipates that southern and central New Jersey should see the most amount of snow. Coastal flooding and power outages may also pose a problem.
