John Degnan, left, looks on after New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie introduced him in Trenton, N.J., Tuesday, April 29, 2014. Christie put forth Degnan, a former state attorney general, to be the next chairman of the embattled agency at the center of the traffic jams scandal that has clouded the Republican governor's political future. Degnan, a registered Democrat who served as attorney general from 1978 to 1981, will replace David Samson, who resigned last month as chairman of the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
