Gov. Christie Expected to Tackle Longer School Days, 'Bridgegate' in State of the State Address

Gov. Christie Expected to Tackle Longer School Days, 'Bridgegate' in State of the State Address

It's New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's turn to give his State of the State address Tuesday afternoon. The annual speech comes just in time to try and take some of the attention off of the "bridgegate" scandal. However, according to CNN, the governor will be discussing the George Washington Bridge traffic jam that has made national headlines.

Christie's State of the State address will be garnering even more media coverage than usual. Christie is currently in the middle of two scandals that could hurt a potential bid for the presidency in 2016.

Christie has already fired two of his top aides because of their role in the "bridgegate" scandal and U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman is currently investigating the incident further.

Christie is also now in the middle of a federal investigation into whether or not he misused millions of dollars of Hurricane Sandy relief funds in a TV ad that included the governor and his family.

Outside of the scandals, Christie is also expected to propose longer school days and school years in Tuesday's speech.
