Gov. Christie talks business, tourism in Asbury Park

Gov. Chris Christie hit the ground running today on his first day back from vacation.

The governor spent part of last week working on the speech he delivered today on a stop in Asbury Park.

Christie was there to promote tourism and emphasize the importance of maintaining clean beaches.

He also talked about the political tug-of-war going on in Trenton and about tax breaks for small businesses.

Christie will next head to Tampa, Fla., where he will deliver the keynote address at the Republican National Convention next Tuesday.
