“I don’t know him, so I can’t be offended and I’m not offended,” Christie said in a press conference. “If he wants to meet with me today, I’m happy to meet with him. If he doesn’t, I’m still going to go up to Fort Lee today because I think it’s important for me to be on the ground there today and to apologize to folks. I’m going to do that.”
