New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has gotten notice this week for his lap-band surgery, but for some 4th graders...he's known for something else.

He's Chris the Spider Killer.

The Governor's daughters' class of 4th graders was visiting the governor's office last week when they spotted a spider crawling on the desk.

The governor acted immediately.... the kids applauded.

The governor tweeted out the video saying: "earlier today I saved a few school children from a spider. no big deal. "

Governor Christie called smacking the spider just a part of the job of governor.

For the record- some of the kids suggested stapling the spider to the governor's desk....
