The Note: Keeping An Eye On Chris Christie
NOTABLES --CHRISTIE POLITICAL ALLY TO PLEAD GUILTY IN BRIDGE PROBE: A key figure in the corruption scandal that threatens New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's political career is poised to plead guilty in federal court today, sources told ABC's JOSH MARGOLIN. Word of David Wildstein's expected guilty plea was confirmed this morning by officials familiar with the situation, sources said. The plea of the former Port Authority executive and one-time political blogger, who went to high school with Christie, would mark a dramatic step in the saga swirling around Christie. The corruption probe that started with unannounced closings of access lanes at the George Washington Bridge in 2013 has, according to some, all but hobbled Christie as he seeks the GOP presidential nomination in 2016. http://abcn.ws/1OLu1zn --CHRISTIE HIMSELF WAS INTERROGATED FOR MORE THAN SEVEN HOURS by federal investigators probing the bridge scandal.

The Note: What's Worrying Bernie Sanders?
NOTABLES --BERNIE SANDERS MAKES IT OFFICIAL -- 'I AM RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT': Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, is running for president in 2016, Sanders said in an interview with ABC's JONATHAN KARL. "I am running for president," Sanders said. "I intend to stand up and fight for working families all over the country." Sanders, who is the longest-serving independent in congressional history, said he will run for president as a Democrat. Sanders will hold a formal kick-off event in May, most likely in his home state of Vermont. Sanders' entry in the race gives Democrats at least one liberal alternative to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who declared her candidacy earlier this month. Sanders will also be Clinton's first formal Democratic challenger, ABC's RICK KLEIN and ARLETTE SAENZ note. http://abcn.ws/1zlkKaz WATCH KARL's interview with Sanders on "Good Morning America": http://abcn.ws/1P9VN3u --CONCERN ABOUT CLINTON: Sanders told ABC's JONATHAN KARL he is concerned by...
