With New Jersey's unemployment rate at 9.8 percent, 0.1 percent higher than it was when he entered office, Gov. Chris Christie says he won't be reprising one of his famous lines in his speech at the convention tonight.

From NJ.com:

"There’s been such speculation among some of the real harsh partisans in this state," Christie said today in New Brunswick. "Let’s make one thing really clear. There are three words that are not in my speech Tuesday night: The Jersey Comeback."

"So for all those Democrats real worried or got real excited that maybe I’d have to take it out or maybe I put it in, those three words aren’t in the speech; I’m not going to tell you about any of the other words in the speech," Christie added to laughter.

New Jersey's unemployment dropped in 2011 to 9.4 percent and during his State of the State address that year he said, “New Jersey’s comeback has begun."
