Christie Says Bridgegate Won’t Impede Agenda

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says the traffic scandal facing him is disappointing but not a distraction from his job as governor — or from raising money for Republican candidates for governor.

Christie told about 1,600 people at the Economic Club of Chicago on Tuesday that the flap over closing the George Washington Bridge in September won’t curtail his second-term agenda.

The moderated, hourlong question-and-answer session was Christie’s first major public appearance since revelations came to light last month that his administration had ordered lane closures in September.

Christie also was meeting privately with Republican donors and was expected to raise $1 million for the Republican Governors Association. He was elected its chairman in December.
