From “Morning Joe”:
One thing the President benefits from, I think — because, again, I don’t think the White House is going to mess this up. I bet you $10,000 — they’ve got in the tri-state area three extraordinarily aggressive governors, two Democrats, one Republican. But Chris Christie, Andrew Cuomo, and Dan Malloy are going to be very aggressive and work very close with the President and the White House because they are very concerned about the people, not just the politics of it. They’re concerned about the people. For the President, those are three highly competent, very aggressive governors.
