President Barack Obama toured the Garden State's battered coastline Wednesday with New Jersey's Republican governor. Gov. Chris Christie, a key Romney supporter continued to heaped praise on his candidate's opponent.
"I cannot thank the President enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state," said Gov. Christie.
Will President Barack Obama and Christie's 'working relationship' affect the presidential election?

Obama takes in damage with Christie in New Jersey
Normally rivals, President Barack Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made no mention of politics Wednesday to tour and assess widespread devastation near Atlantic City, two days after a superstorm left parts of the iconic resort destroyed.
Air Force One landed at an airstrip in the southeastern beach town around 1 p.m. ET, where Obama and Christie shook hands on the tarmac and boarded a helicopter for an aerial tour of the damage. Obama traveled to New Jersey with Craig Fugate, the administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
The helicopter tour took the president and the governor over cleanup efforts in Atlantic City and surrounding towns, including Seaside Heights, where a large pier that previously housed a roller coaster has been submerged in seawater.
I tried to watch Fox News so that I could be impartial in my thinking, but after 3 minutes, I had to turn away, because of the relentless Obama propaganda. Why can't the media just be truthful.
Thank You Obama and Christie:
For putting politics aside because the American People first. Moments like this is what you were elected for and this is what true leadership looks like
And this is how it should be.
way to work together Mr. Governor and Mr. President
