Christie ‘Always Welcome’ In Florida As He Campaigns For Rick Scott


New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is scheduled to campaign for Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) next Friday.

The appearance will come a week after new emails were publicized related to the the George Washington Bridge Scandal. Republicans in the state don’t seem to be shunning the New Jersey governor.

“We always welcome Gov. Christie to Florida,” Florida House Speaker Will Weatherford said according to National Journal. “An unfortunate situation has taken place and he’s addressed it. He’s not hiding from it. I think he handled it well?

Weatherford’s comments came a day after Christie gave an almost two-hour long press conference in which he addressed the new revelations.
