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.
President Barack Obama will return to New Jersey next week to tour the Jersey Shore with Gov. Chris Christie.Read More >
