Jindal: Christie Should Stay On As RGA Chair


Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R), former chair of the Republican Governors Association, on Sunday said that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie should remain chair of the RGA, despite the scandal surrounding the governor over lane closures on the George Washington Bridge.

“I think he should stay there,” Jindal said on CNN’s “State of the Union,” adding that it doesn’t matter who the chair is.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) also said that Christie should remain as the head of the group because he has yet to be concretely tied to the lane closures.

“I am confident,” he said on ABC’s “This Week” of Christie’s ability to serve as RGS chair. “I don’t think he should step down.”
