As "Piers Morgan Tonight" continues coverage of "Sandy" and the storm's aftermath, this evening the program welcomes Chris Christie for his analysis of the situation and insight into recovery efforts.
The Governor of New Jersey's state was amongst those hit the hardest, with devastation he described as incomparable to anything he'd ever seen.
A staunch Republican, and an endorser of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Christie has crossed the aisle this week, and praised President Barack Obama for his support:
"This is much more important than any election, Piers. This is the livelihood of the people in my state," says the 50-year-old who was born in Newark. "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise. And when the president does things that deserve scorn, I'll give him scorn."
With Obama scheduled to visit the Garden State on Wednesday, Christie looks forward to providing him with a first-hand perspective of the wrath that Sandy has wrought on New Jersey:
"I am not going to play politics with this issue, this is so much bigger than an election," reiterates Christie. "When someone asks me an honest question, I give an honest answer: 'How's the president been to deal with?' He's been outstanding to deal with on this. And I look forward to seeing him tomorrow so he can see for himself, what this hurricane has done to my state."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Christie shares some of the challenges his state is facing. Then tune in to "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening at 9 as the governor details the extent of some of the damage suffered in New Jersey.
