Christie: Okla. tornado victims deserve aid
May 22, 2013 17:49 GMT
BELMAR, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says now is "not a time for political retribution" against the people of Oklahoma victimized by a powerful tornado.
The Republican governor on Wednesday urged lawmakers in Washington to support "swift and immediate" aid to tornado victims, even though Oklahoma's two GOP senators voted against bills sending $60 billion in federal aid to victims of Superstorm Sandy, mostly in New Jersey.
Sens. Tom Coburn and James Inhofe were among 36 senators to vote no on the aid package.
Christie says two wrongs don't make a right.
Christie spoke in Belmar at the official re-opening of the town's boardwalk. The shore town was the first Christie visited after Sandy, landing a helicopter in a sand-strewn street.
The borough's 1.3-mile boardwalk was destroyed.
