New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Tuesday that the bridge scandal facing him is disappointing but not a distraction from his job as governor – or from his effort to raise money for Republican candidates for governor.
Christie is a top contender for the party's presidential nomination and the scandal could affect his chances. He spoke during an hourlong question-and-answer session moderated by Motorola Solutions CEO Greg Brown, a Christie friend. Brown, reading questions selected by the club's board, asked Christie if the investigation would hamper his second-term agenda. It was the only question on the subject. (AP)
