Christie takes scandal damage test with election fundraising

By Gabriel Debenedetti WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The first real test of the damage to Chris Christie’s chances of being the Republican nominee for president in 2016 from the “Bridgegate” scandal could come during the next few days. Christie is scheduled to attend a $1,000-per-ticket reception for New Jersey Republican House candidate Steve Lonegan on Thursday. He then will head to Florida for a series of weekend events aimed at raising money for Republican Governor Rick Scott’s re-election campaign, plus a meeting with wealthy Republican donors from all over the United States. Interviews with a half-dozen Republican strategists, donors and operatives indicate that if Christie is interested in a bid for the White House, as many suspect, he has some work to do.
