TRENTON - State regulators have given Gov. Chris Christie's campaign permission to raise money to pay legal fees incurred in connection with the Bridge-Gate and Hoboken Sandy fund scandals.

The cash will be used to comply with state and federal subpoenas. 

Christie's campaign qualifies for the allowance because it used public-matching funds during the election, which limited its fundraising. 

Any money raised for legal fees but not used would have to be handed over to the state government.
