Obama, Christie to tour Sandy recovery on Jersey Shore

President Obama and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose embrace in the wake of Hurricane Sandy was a memorable show of bipartisanship on the eve of last fall's election, will reunite on the Jersey Shore next week.

Obama plans to travel to New Jersey on Tuesday to survey recovery efforts in coastal communities battered by last October's hurricane, a White House official confirmed.

Christie, a Republican running for reelection in a state Obama won handily, will accompany the president on the visit.
