KEANSBERG - Gov. Chris Christie got some great news from his rock idol Bruce Springsteen over the weekend.
"He told me it's official, we're friends," Christie said during a press briefing here on hurricane recovery efforts.
Christie joined Springsteen for an NBC telethon to raise money for residents suffering following Hurricane Sandy.

Christie said he also talked to Springsteen on the phone after he finished speaking with President Obama. Springsteen was flying with Obama aboard Air Force One.
