Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey, the state hit hardest by Superstorm Sandy, is probably Bruce Springsteen’s biggest fan – he has seen “The Boss” in concert more than 130 times. But Springsteen, Jersey’s favorite son, has ignored the Republican governor until recently. Last Friday at a benefit to raise money for the victims of Sandy, Springsteen hugged Governor Christie and said (according to Christie), “It’s official, we’re friends,” which moved Christie to tears. The Daily and Current staffers respond:
