STATE – Gov. Chris Christie was taken to a Somerset County hospital this morning after he complained of trouble breathing. The governor planned to conduct a bill-signing ceremony in Hillsborough that had to be cancelled.

The governor’s office released a statement from Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak: “Gov. Christie was having difficulty breathing this morning and out of an abundance of caution he went to Somerset Medical Center to be checked out.”

“In line with someone dealing with asthma, he is being given routine tests as a precautionary measure. The Governor is extremely grateful for the quality of care he is receiving this morning and has nothing but praise for the world-class doctors, nurses and staff.”

Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno has not been called upon to serve as acting governor; Christie retained full executive authority.
