Gov. Chris Christie is touting his relationship with President Barack Obama as his re-election campaign enters its final days.
The Republican governor said Sunday morning that he has a “good working relationship” with the president. But Christie says he’s willing to criticize Obama if he’s done something poorly, just as he would anyone in public life.
The comments came outside the Jackson Diner in Ocean County, the first of five public appearances Christie has scheduled for Sunday.
His Democratic opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono, is also campaigning aggressively Sunday ahead of Tuesday’s election. She has been critical of Christie’s prospective presidential ambitions.
Christie said he’s only focused on his gubernatorial re-election when asked about 2016. He says it’s unclear what the future may hold.
