ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Atlantic City's mayor says he would love nothing better than to confront New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie "mano a mano."

Speaking on NBC's "Today" show Tuesday, Mayor Lorenzo Langford disputed Christie's criticism that Langford erred by allowing people to shelter on the barrier island rather than moving them inland.

Langford says the governor was either misinformed or ill-advised.

The mayor says while most Atlantic City residents fled the island, some decided to stay. Langford says the city had a contingency plan in place for those who didn't heed the warning to evacuate.

Langford says it's reprehensible that the governor would try to play politics out of a serious situation.

Speaking on "Today," Christie said his "anger has turned to sympathy for those folks."

    Atlantic City Mayor should put politics aside like President Obama did when he travelled with Governor Christie in New Jersey . People are suffering this is not the time to try to play childish confrontation games that belong in school yards.
    I think The Mayor is jealous that President didn’t invite him . Grow Up Mr Mayor
