Maybe it's the summer heat.
Gov. Chris Christie can't seem to keep a lid on his temper these days.
For the second time in a week, Christie lost his cool in public.
While on vacation with his family in Seaside Heights on Thursday, Christie lashed out at a passerby on the Boardwalk, the Huffington Post reports. The passerby made a derisive comment about the governor's education policies, according to TMZ.com.
Last week, the governor berated a reporter during a press conference, after the reporter asked an off-topic question.
Despite the recent flare-ups, the Republican governor is considered a front-runner for the GOP vice-presidential nomination.
