NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is back in New Hampshire for the second time in little more than a month.

This time he's defending his economic record against Democratic attacks as he courts voters in the first-in-the-nation presidential primary state ahead of a prospective White House bid.

Christie says he inherited a moribund economy when he became governor back in 2010. He told voters at Nashua's BAE Systems on Thursday that he's been trying to fix economic problems far worse than New Hampshire's.

Christie's economic record has come under increasing scrutiny as he recovers from a political retribution scandal that's jeopardized his presidential ambitions.

Democratic officials outside Christie's appearance highlighted New Jersey's economic struggles under Christie's leadership: weak job creation, credit downgrades, high property taxes and budget deficits.
