MIAMI (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie faces a big test this weekend following the eruption of a political scandal in his home state. He needs to reassure top financial donors that he's addressing allegations of political payback in New Jersey and remains a viable presidential contender.

Christie is traveling to Florida for a series of fundraisers to help Republican Gov. Rick Scott. Christie leads the Republican Governors Association, and the fundraisers will mark his first out-of-state trip since the scandal involving lane closures at the George Washington Bridge escalated.

The weekend events will give Christie an opportunity to convince longtime supporters that the scandal has not hurt him as a potential 2016 presidential contender.    

Many Republicans have defended Christie and credited him for taking responsibility for the actions of his staff.
