(AP) The Democratic mayor of a New Jersey town flooded during Superstorm Sandy says she was told an ultimatum tying storm recovery aid to her support of a prime real estate development came from Republican Gov. Chris Christie.


Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer told ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the message was delivered by Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno (gwah-DAHN'-oh) at an event in Hoboken in May to promote the opening of a new supermarket.


Zimmer says Guadagno told her: "This project is really important to the governor." And Zimmer says Guadagno then told her: "This was a direct message from the governor."


Zimmer says she didn't reveal the conversation until now because she feared no one would believe her.


Christie spokesman Colin Reed called Zimmer's remarks "categorically false."
