Gov. Snyder on whether Christie can get past scandals: I'll stay in my lane

(CNN) - It's been a rough week for the Republican Party, what with former Governor Mike Huckabee invoking "libido" in the birth control debate, and the ongoing controversy swirling around New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

Meanwhile, at the Republican National Committee's winter meeting, the party is trying to focus on 2016, and move forward.

"We should be listening to our customers, the citizens. And when I talk to the citizens of Michigan, the primary things they are still focused in are more and better jobs," Michigan Governor Rick Snyder told CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper."

Asked whether he thinks Christie – who until recently was viewed as a strong Republican presidential candidate for 2016 – can move beyond the current scandals, Snyder did not give a ringing endorsement.

"The way I view it is, is I'm in Michigan, he's in New Jersey, I'm staying in my lane in Michigan, and New Jersey will work through their issues," said Snyder.
