Chris Christie orders all NJ state parks closed, then spends night with family in one

The Hill has the details.

“That’s because the governor has a residence at Island Beach. Others don’t,” Christie reportedly said at a news conference Saturday that came during the first day of the state’s park shutdown.
“It’s just the way it goes. Run for governor and then you can have the residence,” he added, referring to a residence the Garden State has kept for their governors to visit since the 1950s.

Christie said his family would not postpone or cancel their plans to visit the park, adding that they don’t plan to use any of the “services” the park typically provides.
