Chris Christie

(image) The recent discovery that lane closures on the George Washington Bridge were politically motivated has placed New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) in the hot seat. While Christie claimed to have no knowledge of the event and fired his deputy chief of staff Bridget Kelly, the scandal has cast speculation on Christie. “What has occurred does not define us or our state,” Christie said in his State of the State address Tuesday, “This Administration and this Legislature will not allow the work that needs to be done to improve the people’s lives in New Jersey to be delayed. I am the leader of this state and its people and I stand here today proud to be both. And always determined to do better.”

Vote and Be Heard

Do you think the George Washington Bridge scandal will negatively affect Gov. Chris Christie if he runs for president in 2016?
 Yes, as a political leader Christie is responsible for everything that happens under his watch.
 No, only the liberal media really cared.
 I don’t know enough about the situation to make an informed judgment.
 The topic is irrelevant; I don’t think Christie will be a 2016 GOP nominee.
