Governor Christie takes state helicopter to son's ballgame

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who has campaigned as a fiscally responsible conservative Republican, is in the headlines this morning for taking a state helicopter to his son's baseball game at an upscale prep school.

Christie, who had a private meeting at the governors mansion on Monday night with Iowa donors trying to persuade him to run for president, arrived at Delbarton prep around 4pm on Tuesday where he was driven from the helicopter about 100 yards to the stands in a black limo with tinted windows.

The governor had no public events on his schedule, so it is unclear why he chose to fly to the game in the $12.5 million dollar helicopter.

Critics have blasted the governor for the expense to the state's taxpayers and have noted he was sending his own son to an expensive private school whilst underfunding the state's public schools.
