New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Barack Obama “has kept every promise he’s made” about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy.

Speaking Monday on MSNBC on the six-month anniversary of the deadly storm, the Republican says presidential politics was the last thing on his mind as he toured storm-devastated areas with the president last fall.

Christie’s warm embrace of Obama angered some Republicans, who said it helped tip a close election to the Democrat and away from Mitt Romney, who Christie endorsed.

Christie says he disagrees with Obama on about 95 percent of things. But the governor says he was merely doing his job after the storm, trying to get help for his state.

Federal approval is expected Monday for New Jersey’s plan to spend $1.8 billion in federal grants to rebuild.
