"Christie I still hold responsible for ... the re-election of Obama," Inhofe said, as quoted by The Oklahoman.

When the reporter asked if Inhofe was referring to Sandy, the senator said, "And the way [Christie] handled it, yeah."

Christie's post-Sandy embrace of Obama — days before voters went to the polls — irritated a number of Mitt Romney supporters. The governor also declined to attend a Romney rally in neighboring Pennsylvania on the weekend prior to the 2012 election. 

Inhofe endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the 2012 Republican presidential contest.
