Chris Christie, right, holds 6-week-old Willow DeParre, as first lady Mary Pat Christie looks on as they greet people during the opening of the New Jersey shore, Friday, May 24, 2013, in Seaside Heights, N.J. Christie cut a ribbon to symbolically reopen the state's shore for the summer season, seven months after being devastated by Superstorm Sandy. Several beach communities have annual beach ribbon cuttings, announcing they are back in business. But this year's ceremonies are more poignant seven months after a storm that did an estimated $37 billion of damage in the state. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)
