TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - An aide to Gov. Chris Christie says she texted him her thoughts about testimony on the closure of traffic lanes near the George Washington Bridge but later deleted the messages.

The aide, Regina Egea (eh-JEE'-uh), testified Thursday before lawmakers who continue to probe the lane closures, which appear to have been politically motivated.

She says she was inconsistent with which texts she kept and which she deleted. She says she believes the dumped the messages before the story erupted into a major distraction for Christie but can't be certain.

Egea says some of the messages complimented a Port Authority of New York and New Jersey employee for his "professionalism" testimony on Dec. 9.
