MENDHAM, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – Gov. Chris Christie is urging residents to remain vigilant in the wake of the Boston bombings that left three people dead and scores more injured.
The governor said he has been in constant contact with his senior staff and the head of the state Department of Homeland Security who are keeping a close eye on the security situation across the state.
“I’ve been in touch with Gov. [Deval] Patrick in Massachusetts and offered whatever aid or assistance we can give to him,” Christie told reporters, including WCBS 880’s Monica Miller, in Mendham on Tuesday. “He appreciated that offer of help and was trying to kind of make sense of everything.”
