Gov.-elect Pat McCrory and N.J. Gov. Chris Christie shared a tender moment last week at the Republican Governors conference in Las Vegas, according to a story in today's New York Times.
Christie has felt some resentment from members of his own party who think his embrace of President Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy hurt Mitt Romney. But McCrory apparently isn't one of those, the Times reports:
“People keep asking me why you were so nice to the president,” Governor-elect Pat McCrory of North Carolina told Mr. Christie when they encountered each other beneath a gem-studded chandelier at the hotel.
“I tell them you are doing your job,” Mr. McCrory said.
“That’s right,” Mr. Christie replied, patting him on the back.”
