NEWARK — The impending blizzard has postponed the sentencing of two former allies of Gov. Chris Christie in the George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal.

Bridget Kelly and Bill Baroni were scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday. The court announced Monday that will be postponed until March 29 due to the weather.

Kelly was Christie's deputy chief of staff in 2013. Baroni was a top Christie appointee to the authority that runs the bridge.

They were convicted in November of causing traffic jams near the bridge, allegedly to retaliate against a Democratic mayor who didn't endorse Christie, a Republican. Both have appealed.

They face maximum combined sentences of decades in prison but are expected to receive far less time.
