New Jersey's governor-elect says he won't uproot his four school-age children to move to the chief executive's mansion in Princeton Township.

But Chris Christie says the family will have Sunday dinners at the historic mansion known as Drumthwacket. He also plans to host official functions at the residence.

Christie will continue to live in the Morris County suburb of Mendham, about an hour and 20 minutes from the Statehouse in Trenton.

Gov. Jim McGreevey was the last governor to live full-time at the mansion.

Gov. Jon Corzine, whom Christie defeated in Tuesday's election, used the mansion much as Christie says he will.
