"Believe me, I havent had a lot of sleep the last two nights," he said in a press conference Thursday. "And I've been doing a lot of soul searching."

The story that implicated the embattled governor's office broke open Wednesday morning, however, which is when Christie said earlier in the news conference he learned of the matter.

When a reporter followed up on the remark later in the press conference, Christie agreed that it was a "mistake" to say he had a sleepless two nights.
