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.
