On Wednesday, President Obama made his way to New Jersey, where he will tour the storm-ravaged state with Gov. Chris Christie (R). The White House said they will be "talking with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thanking first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities." Christie has praised Obama's "outstanding" response to the storm, for which the governor is being accused, by some, of playing politics. Obama also stopped at FEMA headquarters to receive a "substantial briefing" about the agency's work in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
