OBAMA TO VIEW STORM DAMAGE IN NEW JERSEY
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will travel to storm-stricken New Jersey on Wednesday to view damage from the massive storm that struck the East Coast and to thank first responders.
The White House says Obama will join New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in viewing the damage. Christie is a Republican who has been an Obama critic. But on Tuesday he praised Obama's leadership in dealing with the storm disaster.
Obama said Tuesday at Red Cross headquarters that the storm "is not yet over." He said there are still risks of flooding and downed power lines and called the storm "heartbreaking for the nation."
The president offered his thoughts and prayers to those affected and said "America is with you." He said he told government officials coordinating the response that there was "no excuse for inaction."
