New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie sounded off Wednesday on a heckler who was critical of the government's response to Hurricane Sandy, ABC News reports.
James Keady, a Democrat, interrupted a news conference marking the second anniversary of the hurricane. He held a sign that said: "Stay in New Jersey, Finish the Job."

"Turn around, get your 15 minutes of fame and then maybe take your jacket off, roll up your sleeves and maybe do something for the people of this state," Christie said.
"So listen, you want to have the conversation later, I'm happy to have it, buddy. But until that time, sit down and shut up."
