SOMERSET – Gov. Chris Christie says he’s still in constant contact with President Barack Obama on the recovery efforts in the state following the devastation left in the wake of Superstorm Sandy.
The governor told reporters he spoke with the president last night at about 6, saying the two discussed recovery efforts in the state.
“I gave him an update on power and on fuel,” Christie said. “And then I started talking to him about rebuilding the Jersey shore.”
Christie said his conversation with the newly re-elected president didn’t stray into politics, explaining their discussion was strictly geared toward rebuilding.
“I simply congratulated him on his win,” said Christie, adding that the two men then immediately went into talking about the state’s recovery effort.
