Any hope of a push-up contest between California Gov. Jerry Brown and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie was put on hold Sunday, as the two posed together all smiles for a photograph at a dinner at the White House.
Brown and Christie, in Washington for a meeting of governors, feuded last year.
In a speech to California Republicans at the Republican National Convention, Christie called the 74-year-old Brown an "old retread."
Brown fired back at New Jersey's rotund governor a few days later, challenging him to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up contest.
On Sunday, Brown's wife, Anne Gust Brown, posted a photograph from her Twitter account with the message, "Jerry and Chris at the White House. Not doing push ups."
Brown missed the governors' closing session on Monday, including another visit to the White House and a talk by Dr. Mehmet Oz.
Christie was there to hear Oz's advice for the governors.
"The average American is intimate once a week," Oz said. "If you could go from once a week to twice a week, which is very achievable for this highly performing group of individuals, you actually increase your life expectancies three years, and it would be a lot more fun."
Treasurer Bill Lockyer is sponsoring Assembly Bill 1059 to tighten conflict of interest rules for two public bond agencies the California Statewide Communities Development Authority and the California Municipal Finance Authority. Private companies staff the agencies and are paid based on the tax-exempt bonds they issue, a practice the state auditor has said "raises concerns."
