NJ governor pledges to vote Romney despite plug for Obama

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie defended his praise for President Barack Obama's support after superstorm Sandy, but said he would stick with his Republican ticket and vote for Mitt Romney in this Tuesday's election.
"The fact of the matter is what New Jerseyans expect from their governor is to work for them, not to work for any particular political party," Christie told Channel 2 in an interview broadcast on Sunday.
"I'm a Republican and I have endorsed Mitt Romney, I support him and I intend to vote for him on Tuesday," said Christie, interviewed in his home state by a visiting Israeli television reporter.
Christie, a popular governor widely seen as a possibleRepublican contender in 2016, had frustrated some in the Romneycampaign who feared he had given what could be a critical boostto Obama, a Democrat.
