Can Chris Christie survive Bridgegate?

On an evening which has seen New Jersey governor Chris Christie field harsh criticism over his perceived role in a George Washington Bridge lane closure, on Wednesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed an expert panel tasked with offering their informed insight and political perspective.

Joining Piers Morgan live, Ryan Lizza suggested that if he ends up linked to the incident, the so-called "bridge-gate" could yield long-term ramifications:

"It's very serious. I think it could threaten his presidential ambitions if he is directly tied to this scandal, which he hasn't yet been. He denied that his staff had anything to do with this, and we now know that that's not true. And in a statement today he has said that he was misled," explained CNN's political commentator and the Washington correspondent for "The New Yorker." "But he has to deal with the fact that he wasn't honest when he said that his staff wasn't involved."

Amid rumors suggesting that Wednesday's traffic incident was a direct move by Christie to punish the mayor of Fort Lee, New Jersey for not supporting the incumbent governor in the state's recent election, Amy Holmes noted that not only might such a tactic be dangerous, but also represent poor partisan strategy: FULL POST
