NJ’s Christie apologizes again for payback scheme



TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — His critics call him a bully, but New Jersey’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie is offering hugs and more apologies to help protect his second-term priorities as a traffic scandal threatens to derail his political future.

The often-outspoken governor offered new proposals on taxes, education and crime in a State of the State address on Tuesday that asked a state and national audience to look beyond his administration’s mistakes.

The success of his plans depends upon cooperation from the Democratic-led state legislature, which is investigating the Christie administration’s role in an apparent political retribution plot that caused a massive traffic jam to punish a Democratic mayor.

Christie is eying second-term accomplishments that would address key issues and strengthen his resume ahead of a prospective presidential bid.
