Despite a slew of ongoing battles here in New Jersey, there's no doubt that Gov. Chris Christie is a powerful political player across the country.

Following the latest Sandy Town Hall today in Stafford, he heads to New Mexico tomorrow to raise money for Gov. Susana Martinez, who faces a June 3 primary election.

Christie campaigned for Martinez back in 2010, while she did the same for him last fall in the Garden State.

Christie has raised record amounts for GOP governors and will make two campaign stops for Martinez on Thursday.

In fact, the two former prosecutors have such a good relationship that Martinez is often considered a potential running mate for Christie, if he decides to run for president in 2016.
