EDISON - Questions have arisen if Gov. Chris Christie (R- N.J.) spoke with acting Gov. Stephen Sweeney (D-N.J.) while he was on vacation with his family during the recent blizzard.

During a press conference today, Christie said that he was in contact with Sweeney throughout the storm; however, during a phone interview with News 12 on Wednesday, acting Gov. Sweeney said that he had not spoken with Christie directly.

Sweeney said that he was only in contact with his representatives, including his chief of staff and state attorney.
