"My house is still broken," three-year-old Nicole Mariano told Chris Christie during a town hall meeting in Middletown, N.J., on Thursday as people displaced by October 2012's Superstorm Sandy pressed the governor for assistance.

Christie called her closer and promised that someone from his administration would see about helping her mom. The pair then high-fived.

Christie is blaming the federal government for deficiencies in the state's recovery after the storm.
