The Los Angeles Times reported Christie told a group of 300 Republican donors Saturday at Mitt Romney's political retreat in Utah that the controversy over lane closures on the George Washington Bridge was just an attempt for his political opponents to gain "more altitude."

But Christie's aides are still testifying about the BridgeGate scandalbefore a federal grand jury. Last week, his chief of staff challenged some of the work of the lawyers who cleared Christie of any wrongdoing in the lane closures.

"Don't be so nervous," Christie told the donors, as quoted by the Los Angeles Times.

“I’m not that worried about it. I hope none of you are worried about it, though I expect some of you are,” he added. “But you’ll get over it. It will be fine.”

The Washington Post reported that Christie also drew laughs from the crowd when he played a video of himself demonstrating the "evolution of dad dancing" with "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon, which included a "This Bridge Is Closed" dance move. So clearly he's moved on.
