Christie's beach photo pops up in Democratic mayor's new ad

Posted September 12

— Republican Gov. Chris Christie's infamous beach trip is turning up again in a new TV ad for a Democratic mayoral candidate.

Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop released his re-election campaign's first television ad on Tuesday.

The 30-second spot shows Fulop on a beach chair and briefly flashes between images of him and Christie from the July 4 weekend at Island Beach State Park. Fulop says politics wasn't a "day at the beach, until suddenly it was."

An NJ.com photographer captured aerial photographs of Christie lounging on the beach, which he had closed to the public as part of a budget impasse with the Democrat-led Legislature.

The photos led to ridicule for the two-term governor whose popularity is at record lows.

Christie's office hasn't responded to a request for comment.
