Christie on Bridgegate: ‘You’ll Get Over It’ [AUDIO]

During weekend fundraising events with some of the GOP elite, Gov. Chris Christie basically told the donors to get over Bridgegate.

Christie has been touring the country in his role as RGA Chairman while developing relationships with the heavy hitters he needs to bankroll a 2016 presidential run.

He attempted to calm any fears about the lingering stench of Bridgegate, promising that there is no smoking gun.

“Don’t be nervous,” Christie told the crowd. “You’ll get over it. It will be fine.”

The issue is part of a very interesting bigger picture.

Christie is attempting to put Bridgegate behind him while balancing a looming pension and budget fight here in New Jersey, along with his RGA schedule and a possible White House run hanging in the background.

This will all happen simultaneously as the various Bridgegate investigations continue.
