Potential 2016 hopefuls are facing political peril as they grapple with the spread of Ebola in their backyards.
Check it out:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) encountered those exposed risks this weekend as he faced fierce criticism from a nurse who was quarantined in his state after treating Ebola patients in Sierra Leone.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D), considered a possible Democratic contender or vice presidential pick, appeared with Christie on Friday to emphasize the risks of the virus. After facing criticism, on Sunday night he walked back a stringent Ebola quarantine protocol and said medical workers with no contact to Ebola patients could self-quarantine at home.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was initially derided for traveling abroad while the first diagnosis was made in Texas, though he eventually cut his trip short to address the situation.
