President Barack Obama visited New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie on Wednesday in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. Having toured some of the state’s devastation, Obama reiterated his support for relief efforts in joint remarks with the governor in Brigantine, NJ.
Christie spoke about the afternoon he spent with the president, during which they both surveyed the storm’s damage up and down New Jersey’s coastline. Putting particular emphasis on the need to restore power and ensure residents have clean drinking water, Christie was praised the president for his help thus far.
Obama “has sprung into action immediately,” Christie said. “He has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. I think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend. It’s been a great working relationship.”
“I cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and for the people of our state,” he added.
