ATLANTIC CITY, N. J. (WKOW)-- Atlantic City's mayor says he would love nothing more than to confront New Jersey Governor Chris Christie "mano a mano".
Speaking on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Mayor Lorenzo Langford disputed Christie's criticism that Langford erred by allowing people to shelter on the barrier island rather than moving them inland.
The mayor says while most Atlantic City residents fled the island, some decided to stay. Langford says the city had a contingency plan in place for those who didn't heed the warning to evacuate.
Langford says it's reprehensible that the governor would try to play politics out of a serious situation. Speaking on "Today", Christie said his "anger has turned to sympathy for those folks."
