The Republican faces a projected budget deficit of $8 billion when he takes office. Friday’s announcement came after the government released unemployment figures that showed the national jobless rate topping 10 percent. Christie campaigned against tax increases.

Christie carried the Republican county by a wide margin in Tuesday’s election. AP
