SEA ISLE CITY, N.J. — Gov. Chris Christie says he found "the fleece," but has decided not to wear it during this weekend's storms.

Christie said Friday that he found the blue fleece emblazoned with his name that he famously wore during the recovery from Superstorm Sandy, but that he has decided to wear other fleeces given to him by towns across the state.

He says he didn't break out the "heavy artillery" Friday and that he will only wear the blue fleece "in case of real emergency."

Christie says he was given 27 different fleeces by towns after Sandy and joked that he went through them methodically Friday before choosing to wear one given to him by Camden County.

He says that was a silent tribute to the members of the Camden County police department for its work in Camden.
