Chris Christie will be sworn in as Governor of New Jersey for a second term on Tuesday. The governor will be participating in a church service in Newark in the morning, followed by his swearing-in in Trenton, and an inauguration party Tuesday evening on Ellis Island.

A big question remaining for Christie's second term is whether or not it will be cut short in order for Christie to run for president in 2014. A big part of his decision may be determined by how his public image fares through the George Washington Bridge scandal and the Hurricane Sandy relief funds scandal.

Investigations continue into both matters, with the governor going on the defensive recently after Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer accused the Christie administration of denying her city Sandy relief funds after she refused to speed up a development plan endorsed by the governor.

UPDATE: is reporting that Gov. Christie's inauguration party planned for Tuesday evening on Ellis Island has been canceled due to the snow.
