After Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc throughout New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie was on five network morning talk shows Tuesday, and gave a chilling assessment of what the state endured.

“I know many people in our state woke up today to absolute devastation. There are no words to describe what so may New Jerseyans experienced over the last 24 hours and what they will have to contend with over the coming days, weeks and months,” Christie said. “I’ll first say to all of you, especially to those out there facing loss, devastation and the heartbreaking reality that your home may be gone, we are with you. You have a long road ahead of you but I have complete confidence we’re going to come out of this better and stronger than before. This state is too tough to give in to this type of devastation.

President Barack Obama will be in New Jersey appearing with Christie on Wednesday.
