New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie defends his Republican credentials in an interview with NBC's Brian Williams scheduled to air Friday at 10 p.m.

In a preview of the interview, Williams questions how well Christie would fare in Republican primaries if he decided to run for president.

"Listen, I think very well. I’ll worry about the presidency if and when I ever decide to run for it," Christie responded.

"But if you’re saying to me, 'How do I feel as a Republican?' I’m a damn good Republican and a good conservative Republican who believes in the things that I believe in."

But Christie added, "that does not mean that I would ever put party before my state or party before my country.”

The governor took flak from many Republicans for what they claimed was an all too chummy relationship with President Barack Obama in the wake of Hurricane Sandy last October, just before the November presidential election. Christie at the time was a vocal and strong supporter of GOP nominee Mitt Romney, and Republicans charged that he should not have been so accommodating to the president.

Christie told Williams he has not a single regret about his dealings with Obama in the aftermath of the storm that devastated his state.

"I don't spend a lot of time worrying about it, because in my heart I know what I did was right," he said. "All I did was compliment someone who was doing their job well. I can't imagine any governor doing anything different."
