President Obama toured parts of storm-ravaged New Jersey on Wednesday with Gov. Chris Christie (R-N.J.), a prominent supporter of GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Obama and Christie met in Atlantic City and took an hour-long helicopter flight over the New Jersey Shore, where homes were flattened and flooded this week by Hurricane Sandy. They then visited a community center in Brigantine, a small town just north of Atlantic City.
“The entire country has been watching what’s been happening,” Obama said. “Everybody knows how hard Jersey has been hit."
