As the summer tourism season gets underway, President Obama reunited with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie Tuesday to check in on the recovery effort along the Hurricane Sandy-ravaged shoreline.
While touring the famed Boardwalk, Obama and Christie played “Touchdown Fever,” an arcade game that involves throwing a football through a tire. According to the pool reporters, the president tried five times without success. But, Christie scored a touchdown in one shot, afterwards declaring “One and done!” Obama responded, “That’s ‘cause he’s running for office!”
The popular Republican governor has been touting the Jersey Shore as a destination that’s back in business as part of the state’s $25 million marketing campaign to get tourists back on the beach.
