Clips From Last Night: Chris Christie and Cory Booker on the devastation in New Jersey after Superstorm Sandy

As the state of New Jersey begins recovery efforts following Superstorm Sandy, on Tuesday Piers Morgan welcomed Chris Christie for his first-hand insight into the situation:

"I toured the Jersey coastline both by helicopter and I landed in two spots on the Jersey Shore," detailed the Garden State's governor. "And I can tell you that I have never seen devastation like this in my life."

On Wednesday afternoon Christie will host Barack Obama, as the president is set to tour the coastline and access the damage caused by a weather event that has left 2.6 million people without power, and destroyed countless pieces of property:

"You see sights like the Seaside Heights boardwalk, where the program 'The Jersey Shore' is filmed, the boardwalk is gone," Christie told Morgan, sharing some of the landmarks he'll visit with Obama. "It is gone. Amusement rides, a roller coaster, a log flume, in the ocean. It's incredible. Homes destroyed. It's an awful thing."

Meanwhile, Tuesday also heard Morgan speak live on the phone with Cory Booker, who touched upon some of the obstacles New Jersey residents are facing in the aftermath of Sandy:

"We still have flooded areas. We still have a lot of challenges," said the mayor of Newark.

"This is going to be a long process of stabilizing, getting out of what I consider the state of emergency and then continuing to forge forward to get ourselves back to a sense of normalcy. There's a lot of work to do."

    Wow – I wish that Piers would allow his interviewers to finish a sentence. He must really fear the answer to be against him or his employers....certainly not kind or respectful or impartial.
