    Ewing — Gov. Chris Christie says President Obama has personally assured him that the state will get expedited federal disaster aid. Christie says the president called him Monday night and offered to cut red tape to help the state get FEMA money. On Millennium Radio 101.5 FM's "Ask the Governor" call-in program, Christie offered high praise for the president and the way Obama has handled the hurricane. Christie had less kind things to say about state workers who complained about battling long-traffic jams on Monday as they headed to work. Responding to an emailed question, Christie advised them to "stop bellyaching."
