Christie, Dems battle over unemployment

Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.) and state Democrats disagree over who's doing a better job of helping New Jersey's unemployed.

Christie vetoed a version of the bill earlier this year. He said he's already helped create 50,000 private sector jobs, without spending the money Democrats need for their program.
