Romney: ‘I’ve Got No Problems with Chris’

“I’ve got no problems with Chris.”

That was Mitt Romney’s answer to CNBC’s Larry Kudlow, when asked on Thursday night whether the New Jersey governor’s work with President Obama has soured him on the Garden Stater.

“I have no ill will for Chris Christie,” Romney said. “He helped me during my campaign immeasurably, raised money, got endorsements, went out on the trail, and he did what he thought was best for the people of New Jersey. That’s why he’s so popular there.”

Christie’s close relationship with the Obama administration, he added, was appropriate, due to Hurricane Sandy. “A governor is going to welcome in the president, and he welcomed in the president. Let’s not worry about that.”
