"Yeah. I’m readier, if that’s a word,” Christie said.

Christie also addressed the scandal over September's lane closures on the George Washington Bridge that led to days of gridlock in Fort Lee, N.J. Some Democrats have alleged the closures were ordered by Christie's allies to retaliate against a mayor who declined to endorse him. Christie's interview with Yahoo was conducted Friday.
