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.
