New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Barack Obama "has kept every promise he's made" about helping the state recover from Superstorm Sandy.

Speaking Monday on MSNBC on the 6-month anniversary of the deadly storm, the Republican says presidential politics was the last thing on his mind as he toured storm-devastated areas with the president last fall.

Christie's warm embrace of Obama angered some Republicans, who said it helped tip a close election to the Democrat and away from Mitt Romney, who Christie endorsed.

Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has declared a public health emergency for New York State because of the severity of the flu season.

Cuomo made the announcement Saturday. His executive order allows pharmacists to administer flu vaccinations to patients between 6 months and 18 years of age.

The order also suspends for the next month the section of State Education Law limiting the authority of pharmacists to administer immunizing agents only to individuals 18 years of age or older.
