GOP lawmakers keeping watchful eye on Bridgegate hearing

TRENTON – Republican leadership in the Legislature are apparently keeping a close eye on the ongoing Bridgegate committee hearings.

Senate Minority Leader Tom Kean Jr. and Assembly Minority Leader Jon Bramnick were both spotted among the crowd of reporters Tuesday as Gov. Chris Christie’s chief spokesman testified before lawmakers investigating the administration over the George Washington Bridge lane closures.

Both men, who are district mates, sat in during the hearing at various times during the questioning of Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak.
