Just six days before the election, President Barack Obama toured storm-ravaged areas with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. He told Garden State residents struggling in the superstorm’s aftermath that all of America shares their pain—and their government is there to help.

“The main message I wanted to send is the entire country has been watching what’s been happening,” Obama said Wednesday during a visit to the Brigantine Beach Community Center. “Everybody knows how hard Jersey’s been hit.”

(“Except my boss,” shouted Michael Henshaw, 32, a Brigantine resident who works at an insurance company. “Well, except your boss. If you need me to call, you let me know,” Obama replied, drawing laughter from the room. That exchange, and many of the details in this post, are from pool reporter Reid Epstein of Politico.)
