Gov. Chris Christie said Monday he appreciates steps President Barack Obama has taken to ensure New Jersey gets any federal assistance the state may need.
The governor told reporters during an evening news conference that he spoke with the president directly Monday afternoon.
“The president wanted to know if we had everything that we needed,” Christie said, adding that he told the president the state is in a good position to respond with the severe weather.
“We had a good conversation,” Christie said.
The governor said he was told that he could call the president at the White House directly if he needs any assistance from the federal government.
“I appreciate that call from the president,” Christie said. “It was very proactive and I appreciate that type of leadership.”
