URGENT - New-Jersey-Christie-Surgery
(CNN) -- N.J. Gov. Chris Christie had stomach surgery to slim down and stay healthy for his family, a source close to the governor said Tuesday. The source confirmed a story about the procedure in the New York Post, which said the governor pursued the procedure secretly. "For me, this is about turning 50 and looking at my children and wanting to be there for them," he told the Post.
