Gov. Christie holds town hall in Monroe

Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) held his 17th town hall today in Monroe Township, where he spoke about the windfall of cash coming to the state over the next fiscal year.

New Jersey will be receiving somewhere between $500 and $900 million in extra tax revenue, without raising taxes. The legislature credits an improving economy.

The governor says the influx in revenue is also thanks to taxpayers and businesses no longer fleeing the state's tax-first tactics.

With less than two months before lawmakers break for election campaigning, Christie says this isn't the time to stray from his winning playbook.
