Governor Chris Christie: Mistakes were clearly made

Governor Chris Christie appeared to make reference to a couple of recent scandals in his 'New Jersey State of the State' speech.

His opening words were as follows:

The last week has tested this administration.

Mistakes were clearly made ... I know our citizens deserve better, much better.

It follows allegations that staff in Governor Christie's office conspired to cause a traffic jam on the George Washington Bridge, and that funds for the victims of Superstorm Sandy were misused for a promotional campaign.
