Christie did good job with apology, but will it be enough?

christie,chrisNew Jersey Gov. Chris Christie did a good job today apologizing for the closing of highway lanes to punish a Democratic mayor who didn’t endorse Christie’s re-election. Though he again denied any knowledge of the actions taken by some of his associates, he took responsibility for what happened. He also announced the firing of one of his top staff members, who he said lied to him about the incident. But the investigations into bridge-gate will continue. If information comes out indicating that Christie knew anything about the closure – or other examples surface of how Christie or his staff retaliated against political opponents – Christie’s hopes for a 2016 GOP presidential nomination could quickly fade.
