ORLANDO, Fla. (PIX11) –– Even in the sunshine state, Governor Chris Christie can’t escape Bridgegate criticism.

Christie arrived in Florida for a series of fundraisers to help Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Christie leads the Republican Governors Association. The fundraisers  mark his first out-of-state trip since the news of Bridgegate broke.

Protesters greeted Christie at a private fundraiser in Orlando along with speakers from the Democratic National Committee.

“It’s not every day that we have a governor visit Florida, whose scandals burn so brightly that they outshine even those of our own scandal plagued Governor Rick Scott,” said Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Christie also has stops planned in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach this weekend.

    This whole BridgeGhazi thing is out of control. Christie is an angel compared to proven serial incompetent Hillery Clinton. CNN reported today: The January 15, 2014 release of the Senate Intelligence Committee report on Benghazi confirms what hundreds of hours of research, inquiry, and conversation revealed to me and many other Americans the following:

    1. The September 11, 2012 attack could have been prevented.

    2. Secretary of State Clinton did not do an appropriate risk assessment for Ambassador Stevens and other outpost personnel.

    3. Al Qaeda was directly involved in the detailed planing and execution of the attack.

    4. President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton both knew it was a terrorist attack on the evening of September 11, 2012.

    5. A lie was manufactured and perpetuated as they repeatedly blamed an anti-Islamic video as the impetus of the attack.
