New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to Visit Mo. Monday
TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is hitting the campaign circuit for a three-state tour.
Christie, popular nationally among Republicans for his blunt, no-nonsense style, will headline the Missouri Republican Party's annual dinner Monday night in St. Louis. The event is typically the state party's largest fundraiser of the year.
On Tuesday morning, he'll speak at a breakfast for former Missouri Republican state party chairman Ann Wagner, who is running for Congress.
Christie then heads to California, where he'll deliver the keynote address for a leadership forum at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library on Tuesday night.
And he heads south on Thursday to appear with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal at a Republican fundraiser.
Jindal campaigned for Christie in 2009 and the two have remained friends. Tickets for that fundraiser run from $10,000 to $100,000.
