NJ Governor Calls For Cooperation Amid Scandal

(Trenton, NJ) -- New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is calling for Republicans and Democrats to work together to serve the citizens of his state. During a speech in Trenton today, the Republican governor did not directly address the George Washington Bridge scandal and other controversies swirling around his administration. Christie won re-election in a November landslide, and he was sworn in for his second term today. Christie's inaugural gala planned for tonight on Ellis Island has been cancelled as a snowstorm bears down on the Northeast.
Christie was thought to be a possible front-runner for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, but a new poll shows his support among voters is eroding. Christie led Democrat Hillary Clinton by one percent in a December Quinnipiac University poll. New numbers from Quinnipiac out today show the former Secretary of State now leading Christie in a hypothetical matchup, 46 percent to 38 percent.
