Cuomo on gun violence: 'It has been enough'

(CNN) – Ban assault weapons. It's a call that's been trumpeted on the airwaves, in protests and in some TV ads.

But now it's coming from a high-profile governor, signaling what could be a major move in the renewed push for tighter gun laws after the Connecticut elementary school shooting last month–a massacre that capped a year marked by other high-profile shootings.

Christie comes to Washington

Washington (CNN) – New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie was in Washington, D.C. Thursday for meetings with President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner, and other officials regarding relief for Hurricane Sandy, aides to the governor said.

Christie's visit follows a similar trip to Washington earlier this week by New York Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo, while both men push for federal funding to aid their states after the late October storm ravaged parts of the Northeast.

Washington meetings leave Cuomo encouraged on storm aid

Washington (CNN) - Monday's meetings in Washington left Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York "optimistic" that lawmakers, currently sharply divided over a deal to avert massive spending cuts and tax hikes, will come together to approve billions to aid the recovery from Sandy, the superstorm which hit over a month ago.

Standing with members of his delegation after meeting with leaders on Capitol Hill and at the White House, Cuomo said House Speaker John Boehner "wants to be supportive" and said their discussion did not delve into some details, such as whether Republicans would require an emergency appropriations measure to include spending offsets from other pockets in the budget.
