(Newser) – Chris Christie is on a big promotional push for the Jersey Shore this weekend, taking an old fashioned road trip along the beaches to encourage tourists back after Sandy, reports NBC. He's even willing to risk the political blowback of strolling the shores with Obama again, adds Today. Someone he was probably less happy to see at the beach? Snooki, who he finally met when the two were filming separate TV segments in Seaside Heights yesterday.

Christie has been a vocal critic of reality show Jersey Shore, so the meeting was pretty awkward, reports CNN, which has video of the encounter. "Just wanted to meet you and just hope you start to like us," Snooki said to the governor, not appearing as if she particularly wanted to meet him at all. "I appreciate it," Christie replied. "We'll do our best." "He just doesn't like us, that's it," Snookie said to the camera after he'd left.
