SHARE Hurricane Sandy odd couple: Obama to tour NJ damage with Gov. Christie

WASHINGTON–President Barack Obama will tour Hurricane Sandy damage on Wednesday with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie–and while off the campaign trail will be making a very presidential statement–helping one of his harshest critics recover from the storm.
