A visit to the scene of New Jersey's devastating boardwalk by the newly-crowned Miss America was cancelled on Monday.

The Miss America Organization told The Associated Press that Nina Davuluri, who won the title Sunday night in Atlantic City, was to head to Seaside Park and Seaside Heights Monday afternoon to support the reconstruction efforts.

The visit was cancelled after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was having cabinet officials meet with affected business owners at the same time as Davuluri's scheduled visit, according to Newsday.
