Interviewed Tuesday on NBC, [New Jersey Governor Chris] Christie described Obama's response as "outstanding," and he told CNN that the president had been "incredibly supportive and helpful to our state."
"This is much more important than any election," Christie told CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."
Obama has "been outstanding to deal with on this and I look forward to seeing him tomorrow so he can see for himself what this hurricane has done to my state," Christie said Tuesday night.
"I spoke to the president three times yesterday," Christie said on CNN's "Starting Point with Soledad O'Brien." "He has been incredibly supportive and helpful to our state and not once did he bring up the election. If he's not bringing it up, you can be sure that people in New Jersey are not worried about that primarily if one of the guys running isn't."Christie is focused on what is best for his state right now. But you know that the GOP's Taliban will never forget that Christie wasn't doing everything he could in order to make Obama look bad and score some cheap political points for Myth Romney.
