FORT LEE, N.J. (AP) - Gov. Chris Christie has arrived in a northern New Jersey borough to apologize in person to the mayor for traffic jams that were apparently created as political payback.
Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich had urged the governor not to make the trip late Thursday, though he said he accepts the governor's apology. Sokolich wants to see if more details emerge from various investigations.
Christie did not comment as he entered the Fort Lee municipal building.
The governor publicly apologized at a Trenton news conference Thursday morning after emails seemed to show an aide wanted highway lanes near the George Washington Bridge closed in September because the mayor wasn't endorsing Christie.
Christie fired the aide.
Sokolich says he hopes Christie will apologize again if investigations reveal additional misconduct.
