New Jersey's governor-elect and Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell met for the first time since the election on Monday and seemed optimistic about working together.

Rendell met with Gov.-elect Chris Christie and Lt. Gov.-elect Kim Guadagno in Fairless Hills, Pa., to talk about marketing tourism, regional economic development and plans to deepen the Delaware River shipping channel.

Christie says he'll look to Pennsylvania as a business model for luring business to New Jersey.

Both governors say they expect continued competition between the states, and that it will be fierce but fair.
