CHICAGO (AP) - New Jersey's heavily-scrutinized governor is set to address an economic club in Chicago.
Republican Chris Christie plans to speak to the Economic Club of Chicago at 12:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Sheraton Chicago Hotel.
The Economic Club says Christie will have a "conversation" moderated by Motorola Solutions CEO and Board Chair Greg Brown.
The appearance comes in the midst of an investigation into Christie's role in a bridge closure scandal.
Emails last month revealed Christie's staff was involved in ordering a September shutdown of access lanes to the George Washington Bridge. It's an action viewed by some as retribution against a Democratic mayor. The result was gridlock for a nearby community.
Christie has denied involvement. Still, the scandal has taken a toll on the governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate.
