(Newser) – A health scare for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie today: He was taken to the hospital after having trouble breathing, reports the Star-Ledger. A spokeswoman says Christie is doing fine and is expected to be released later today. The governor, who has asthma, had difficulty breathing en route to a public event, and troopers brought him to the hospital "out of an abundance of caution," says the spokeswoman. "He's in great spirits. He's looking forward to getting back to work."
