HAMPTON, N.H. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is returning to the state that seems to be becoming his second home.

The potential Republican presidential contender is scheduled to hold a town hall event in Hampton, New Hampshire, Thursday evening.

The political action committee that has been funding Christie's recent travel says it will be his tenth town hall event out of state.

Christie is also scheduled to attend private meetings while he's in town.

Christie has been traveling often to early-voting states as he decides whether to announce his candidacy.

He's said he'll make a decision by the end of the month.

New Hampshire is considered an important state for the governor to perform well in if he chooses to run.
