Christie continues tax relief tour at shore

Posted: Updated:

OCEAN CITY, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie continues his tax-cut tour in Ocean City Wednesday.

The governor wants Democrats to commit to funding a 10 percent tax cut in January.

Democrats say they want to be sure New Jersey has the money first.

Christie is standing by his pronouncement that a "Jersey Comeback" has begun even though unemployment jumped to 9.6 percent in June, significantly above the 8.2 percent national average.

The Republican has been urging Democratic lawmakers to "get the hell off the beach" to vote for tax relief.

It's the same language he used to get residents off the sand ahead of Tropical Storm Irene last summer.
