In meeting with NJ Delegation, Christie critical of Cuomo

In a lovefest backroom gathering of Gov. Chris Christie and the N.J. Congressional Delegation, the governor didn’t clash with anyone from New Jersey.

Not this time.

But a source close to Christie’s talks with the entire N.J. delegtion said Christie was critical of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, who specified a price tag for federal aid for his state’s recovery effort from Hurricane Sandy.

The New York governor wants $30 billion in federal relief aid.

Cuomo acted too early, in the opinion of Christie.
