Romney praises Gov. Christie's 'heart and passion'

MORRISVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Mitt Romney is praising New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's response to Hurricane Sandy.

The Republican presidential candidate told supporters in Pennsylvania Sunday night that Christie is giving "all of his heart and his passion" to help his state recover from the storm that wreaked havoc along the East Coast last week.

President Barack Obama visited New Jersey storm victims with Christie last week. The New Jersey governor publicly praised the president's leadership after the disaster, but on Sunday he said he still intended to vote for Romney.

Romney did not praise Obama but thanked "the governors that are dealing with this tragedy."

The Republican candidate made his comments at an evening rally in eastern Pennsylvania, along the New Jersey border.
