TRENTON, N.J. (AP) ' A spokeswoman for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he is "fine and in charge" but remains in a hospital.
Maria Comella, Christie's deputy chief of staff, tells The Associated Press that Christie is in the hospital in Somerset.
Christie was taken to the Somerset Medical Center on Thursday after he had difficulty breathing.
Michael Drewniak, another spokesman, says the 48-year-old governor was driven to the hospital by his state police security detail out of an "abundance of caution." He says that Christie suffers from asthma and all indications are Christie "will be fine."
