TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has scheduled a news conference after emails and text messages revealed his administration may have closed highway lanes to exact political retribution.

The governor will answer questions at the Statehouse at 11 a.m. Thursday.

Christie issued a statement Wednesday saying he was “outraged and deeply saddened” by the revelations. He said he was misled by a key aide and he denied involvement.

The revelations thrust a regional transportation issue into the national political spotlight. They raise new questions about the prospective Republican presidential candidate’s leadership on the eve of his a second term designed to jumpstart his road to the White House.
