In a tweet on Saturday, Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) wrote: "In consultation with my doctors, I checked myself into Morristown Medical Center this afternoon. While I am feeling good and only have mild symptoms, due to my history of asthma we decided this is an important precautionary measure."

A second tweet read, "I am thankful for our hardworking medical professionals and look forward to coming home soon."
