Christie dismissive of Weinberg’s plan to track his trips

    Chris Christie sounds a bit frustrated over N.J. Sen. Loretta Weinberg’s plan to have him send written notification when he plans to be away from the state.

    The guv calls the move “just politics,” and in a video filmed by the Star-Ledger, says Weinberg would “love to be lieutenant governor, but she’s not.”

     

    Christie says he follows policy when it comes to his trips, and sends written notice when he’ll be out of state overnight. For day trips, he says, he alerts Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno, who is in charge when he’s away.

    Weinberg introduced legislation yesterday that would require Christie to submit written notification any time he leaves the state for business, including details of where he’s going, for how long and why.
