BRIGANTINE, N.J. (AP) -- President Barack Obama is telling people recovering from Sandy's devastation along New Jersey's coastline that "we are here for you, and we will not forget."
Obama joined New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and other officials to inspect damage from the massive storm that struck the East Coast. He saw flooded neighborhoods and sand-strewn streets during a tour that came less than a week before Election Day.
Obama says the federal government is "here for the long haul."
Christie, a supporter of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, says he "can't thank the president enough" for his concern and compassion during the storm.
