Christie Says He Would ‘Smack’ Andrew Cuomo for ‘Summer of Hell’ Prediction

By Jack Heretik

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R.) said Monday that he would “smack” New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D.) for predicting a “summer of hell” due to commuting problems in New York City.

Cuomo said last week that “it very well could have been” a summer of hell because of ongoing track repairs at New York’s Penn Station, the nation’s busiest rail station. He noted that repairs would interrupt rail service and be a disaster for commuters but that early reports are optimistic.

Christie scolded Cuomo for his remark during an unrelated event on Monday, saying that he would “smack” the New York governor, the Associated Press reports.

Last week was the start of daytime track work, and Amtrak’s chief operations officer said repairs were proceeding ahead of schedule. Early reports of track maintenance are positive, but Christie warned that it was still early.

Cuomo did not responded to the AP’s request for comment.
