New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) says he's not swearing off attending baseball games, despite being heckled and booed at recent outings. 

The New Jersey governor got in a fan's face while holding a plate of nachos during a Milwaukee Brewers-Chicago Cubs game on Sunday, after the man reportedly heckled Christie. 

"I didn't dump the nachos on him or anything, which was an option," Christie said at an event in Trenton, N.J., on Wednesday, according to The Associated Press. "No, I'm not swearing off baseball games in any way."

Christie's Sunday confrontation was the latest instance of the governor facing criticism at a baseball game. He was also booed at a St. Louis Cardinals-New York Mets game last month, after catching a foul ball. 

Christie, whose term in office ends in January 2018, has been facing consistently low approval ratings. A Quinnipiac poll released in June put the governor's approval at just 15 percent.

Christie's lieutenant governor, Kim Guadagno, is running to succeed him.
