The former top political advisor to President Barack Obama says that Chris Christie will live to "fight another day," if he's telling the truth. Axelrod made the comment in a tweet.

"Christie handled about as well as he could. Unless smoking gun turns up tying him to scheme, or others arise, he lives 2 fight another day," said Axelrod.

The White House declined to express comment on the Christie scandal except to say that it was a "state issue." Jay Carney said that questions about an investigation should be sent to the Justice Department.
