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.

 

"I don't think what he's doing tonight, the method by which he's doing it helps to build a trustful relationship."
—Gov. Chris Christie reacting to President Barack Obama's speech on immigration reform.
