Christie headed out on four-state campaign swing

Gov. Chis Christie, much in demand as a fundraiser and campaign headliner as November approaches, will head out Thursday on a four-state swing to raise money for candidates in the Western part of the country.

The governor will hit Washington State, North Dakota, Montana and Michigan during the four-day swing that includes a Michigan fundraising stop for Republican Presidental nominee Mitt Romney.

The trip includes a total of nine events including three in Washington for Gubernatorial Candidate Rob McKenna, two in Montana – for Gubernatorial Candidate Rick Hill and U.S. Senate candidate Denny Rehberg – two in North Dakota for Gov. Jack Dalrymple, U.S. Senate Candidate Rick Berg amd U.S. Congressional Candidate Kevin Cramer.

He’ll head to Michingan Saturday afternoon for a Mitt Romney event and a later one for the Michigan Republican Party. 

"He’s obviously working very, very hard at it. I mean he’s traveling all over the country as chairman of the [Republican Governors Association] and I think at this point he has as good a chance or better than anybody else. His name is household word all across the country, and I think he would make a great president."
