New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is chiding his rivals for the Republican presidential nomination for speaking in slogans rather than offering specifics on policies they'd pursue if elected to the White House.

At a town hall meeting in New Hampshire on Tuesday, Christie said that talk of making America great may sound good. But, he says, "Where's the beef?"

Christie's remarks came during his 15th town hall in the early voting state. Performing well in the New Hampshire primary is seen as crucial to Christie's presidential hopes.

He says he is running the most detailed campaign, pointing to policy speeches he's delivered on entitlement overhaul, national security and several other issues.
