TRENTON, N.J. —

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who starts a second term with multiple investigations into his administration's tactics underway, will accent bipartisanship and diversity in his inaugural speech Tuesday.

"We have to be willing to play outside the red and blue boxes," Christie will say, according to excerpts of the address obtained by The Associated Press. "We have to be willing to reach out to others who look or speak differently than us."

The governor has a full day's events planned, beginning with Mass in Newark.

Christie won re-election by 22 points but now finds his administration under an ethical cloud.

Investigations into traffic jams that appear to have been ordered for political retribution and an allegation that Superstorm Sandy aid was tied to approval of a real estate project could undermine his ambitions.
