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.
Until recently, Springsteen has largely given a cold shoulder to Christie, who's been trying to get him to perform a concert for particular events. The fissure is largely because of the polar opposite political views they have.
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.

"Gov. Chris Christie says he won’t campaign for the Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York because the cause is hopeless: Gov. Andrew Cuomo is ahead by more than 30 points. But he will campaign in New Hampshire, over and over, where the Republican is also trailing by more than 30 points. What’s the reason? It may be that New Hampshire holds the nation’s first presidential primary. It may be that he doesn’t want to mess with Cuomo, who knows where the skeletons are buried at the Port Authority. But one thing is certain: Gov. Straight Talk is spinning again. And it seems to be habit-forming." - columnist Tom Moran- Star-Ledger
