Christie comes to Washington

Washington (CNN) – New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie will be in Washington, DC Thursday for meetings on Capitol Hill and with White House officials regarding relief for Hurricane Sandy, according to a senior Christie adviser.

Christie's visit follows a similar trip to Washington earlier this week by New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, while both men push for federal funding to aid their states after the late October storm ravaged parts of the northeast.
