Jindal, last year's RGA chairman, said Democrats who have called for Christie to step down from the RGA don't understand the organization or the role of its chairman. "The reality is within RGA, no one governor is more important than the other," he said.
The statement Sunday from Renna's lawyer, Henry Klingeman, said she said been considering leaving since after the November election, which Christie won decisively. She said the transition to a second term is a "natural time" to pursue opportunities in the private sector.
"I have spent almost four years working hard for a governor I continue to respect and admire," she said in the statement.
Renna is among 17 people close to Christie subpoenaed by a legislative panel, almost all of whom have asked for extensions from Monday's deadline. She is the fifth person close to Christie to lose their job amid the scandal. The others have been fired or resigned.
Christie's spokesman declined to comment on the resignation.
Mulvihill reported from Haddonfield.
