New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was frustrated at a New Hampshire town hall attendee who asked why he wasn’t in his home state after a major snowstorm. “I don’t know what you expect me to do. Do you want me to go down there with a mop?” the GOP presidential candidate said at a Monday campaign event in the first-in-the-nation primary state. Christie fired back that only one county in the state suffered flooding and that the state was in good shape after the storm. “The fact is we had all roads clear, we had NJ Transit back up, and for the people who did sustain some flooding, we had folks on the ground to evacuate them if they needed to be evacuated. Nobody evacuated.”   Christie said that most people in the state had their power restored and noted that the state Department of Transportation released a report on Monday that there was no residual flooding.
