New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on the stump for fellow GOP executives as head of the Republican Governors Association, has reportedly raised $50 million since taking over as chairman, breaking a previous six-month record by $25 million.

Christie took over the RGA following the 2013 election, and the political organization now has "nearly $70 million cash on hand… nearly double the cash on hand figure the RGA had at this point in 2010," an RGA official told CNN.

Christie has returned to making public appearances during RGA trips after taking part in mostly private events in the aftermath of his Bridge-gate scandal, in which aides allegedly orchestrated lane closures on the George Washington Bridge that gridlocked a small New Jersey town. Christie has denied any role in the shutdowns; a federal investigation is continuing.

Last week, Christie was in Tennessee delivering a keynote address at a GOP fundraising dinner and in the next few days will be stumping for Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett in his re-election bid, The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Republicans are defending 22 governorships in November, eight more than Democrats, and have a 29-21 advantage over Democrats in terms of governorships held, CNN reported.
