*Governor Chris Christie may be a supporter of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney who said he’s get rid of FEMA, but the man who presides over Super Storm Sandy battered New Jersey, had nothing but praise for President Obama and FEMA.
The Governor made his comments on the morning TV shows including ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“I have to say, the administration, the president, himself and FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate have been outstanding with us so far,” Christie said on Good Morning America. “We have a great partnership with them.”
Christie told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that Obama called him on Monday night around midnight to ask if there was anything else the federal government could do to help. Christie added that they worked together to move forward with a Major Disaster Declaration for New Jersey.
The Major Disaster Declaration provides funding for recovery efforts, including infrastructure projects, temporary housing, low-cost loans to cover uninsured property loss and assistance to individuals and businesses.
