WATCH: Christie touts Jersey Shore’s beaches

ASBURY PARK, N.J. (AP) — Gov. Chris Christie wants families to continue flocking to the beaches of the Jersey shore.

Christie took a stroll along the Asbury Park boardwalk Friday to tout the state’s 127 miles of coastline.

The governor says this has been a “banner season” thanks in part to good weather nearly every weekend.

He said preliminary numbers show beach badge sales in Asbury Park up 45 percent so far this year.

Superstorm Sandy badly devastated the state’s beaches. But Christie said they’ve rebounded.

Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin said beaches have been open 99.9 percent of the time.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has completed eight beach repair projects costing an estimated $345 million.
