The governors of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut have written an op/ed due to run in tomorrow’s Washington Post that pushes Congress to approve a $60.4 billion supplemental aid package.

Govs. Andrew Cuomo, Chris Christie and Dannel Malloy write in the op/ed, which was posted on the newspaper’s website:

The request for $60 billion was diligently assembled based on conservative estimates of our states’ needs and is in line with supplemental appropriations approved after previous disasters for other areas.

This is not the time for partisanship or regional isolationism. The three of us have reached across the aisle and across our borders to work together during this crisis. Congress must do the same and not allow this much-needed aid to fall in to the ideological divide.

To paraphrase former Cuomo aide Steve Cohen, this is the administration in “get along” mode.

As we’ve written on this blog before, the three governors — who each bring unique, uh, personalities, to the table — aren’t necessarily the best of friends. Making the triumverate all the more interesting is the speculation that two of three may be mounting a White House run in 2016.

But the devastation caused by Sandy and the need to balance the books in order to pay for the recovering and rebuilding from the storm, is outweighing individual ego for now.

Coinciding with the op/ed, Lt. Gov. Bob Duffy is making a trip to Washington today to lobby for Sandy aid himself.
