Christie vows to avoid 'garbage' politics

SOMERS PARK, N.J. (AP) - Republican Gov. Chris Christie says he feels sorry for the supporters of his Democratic rival because she's running a campaign based on anger.

Christie vowed not to engage in "garbage" politics ahead of Tuesday's election as he faced supporters Saturday at a packed VFW hall along the Jersey Shore.

Meanwhile, Democratic candidate state Sen. Barbara Buono is intensifying her political attacks against the popular governor. She's citing revelations in a new book that former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney shied away from Christie as a potential vice presidential pick because of political baggage.

Polls suggest that Christie is the heavy favorite in Tuesday's election. He's in the midst of a statewide bus tour that includes more than 40 stops over the campaign's final week.
