New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker are channeling the Seinfeld-Newman rivalry in a video parody that spoofs the mayor's heroics and Christie's vice presidential potential.      

The Republican governor finds himself thwarted at do-gooding by Booker. The Democrat rescued a neighbor from a fire last month.      

Booker tells Christie "I got this'' as he fixes the governor's flat tire, helps Bruce Springsteen replace a missing guitar and Tebows after catching a baby dropped from a state Capitol balcony before Christie's eyes.      

Each time, Christie grits his teeth and says "Booker!''      

Booker is then shown on a phone telling Mitt Romney he wouldn't make a good running mate. Christie grabs the receiver, saying: "Excuse me mayor, I got this.''      

The video played at Tuesday's New Jersey Press Association's Legislative Correspondents Club show.
