Former Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is set to join ABC as an occasional contributor.

Christie is expected to debut on the network Tuesday during the 7 a.m. hour of "Good Morning America" before he joins a panel later that day to discuss President Trump's first State of the Union address, sources familiar with the matter told the Washington Examiner.

An ABC spokeswoman declined a request for comment.

The failed presidential candidate, whose popularity plummeted in the wake of the Fort Lee lane closure scandal, was replaced by Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy on Jan. 16 after eight years in the governor's mansion.

However, Christie is a longtime Trump associate who can provide a valuable perspective on the administration and on its supporters, sources told NJ Advance Media who first reported the move.
