In the wake of a brouhaha over Gov. Chris Christie’s schedule, the state Republican Party has released a list of out-of-state events the governor plans to attend next week.

The release is a departure from the norm as the governor's office generally does not list out-of-state political events the governor attends.

Last week, Sen. Loretta Weinberg called for the governor to make the public aware of all trips after Mother Jones Magazine revealed that Christie had taken an until-then unreported trip to Colorado to speak to a convention of wealthy donors.

Christie dismissed Weinberg’s proposal as garbage and told the Statehouse press corps that he would not reveal certain events.

“That’s just how it is,” he said then.

A spokesman for the state GOP said the release of the political schedule has always been handled by the state party.  Spokesman Rick Gorka said the release had nothing to do with Weinberg's request.

A review of emails received from the state committee over the past year show no political schedule has been released by the party in at least 12 months.

The list released by the state committee includes  several fundraisers in Missouri, as well as at least two in California.  Christie will be in California for a speech at the Reagan library Tuesday.

Below is the complete schedule:

Quote of the Day

quote of the day

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish
