Cuomo reportedly backs Christie over GWB controversy

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo supports Gov. Chris Christie’s explanation for lane closures on the George Washington Bridge, according to published reports.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday Cuomo’s response earlier in the day when questioned about the controversy.

“It’s a season of loaded questions,” the WSJ reported Cuomo saying when asked whether he believed Christie’s explanation of the incident that New Jersey’s governor gave during a Friday morning news conference.

“The governor and I have a good relationship–a professional relationship and a personal relationship. The issue of the traffic study was primarily a New Jersey incident, so our basic operating agreement is, when it has to do with New Jersey, Gov. Christie handles it. When it has to do with New York, I handle it. If it’s a management issue, dealing with the Port itself, we do it jointly. But I’m sure it is as Gov. Christie says it is.”
