Christie to campaign for GOP’s Havenstein

MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a potential presidential candidate in 2016, makes his first visit to the first-primary state when he comes to Manchester to campaign with Republican candidate for governor Walt Havenstein.

Christie, who is also chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association, will first preside over an RGA finance meeting Friday afternoon then campaign with Havenstein at T-Bones restaurant in Bedford. He’ll finish the visit with a private fundraiser in Atkinson.

Havenstein says he’s “delighted” that Christie is visiting the state to campaign for him. He also says he doesn’t think there’s any risk of campaigning with Christie because of the Bridgegate controversy.

Havenstein faces Andrew Hemingway in a Republican primary to take on incumbent Democrat Maggie Hassan.

Christie will start the day in Washington D.C. with an address before the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority event.The coalition is a nonprofit group that says it is committed to educating and mobilizing people of faith to restoring America’s greatness and founding principles.

Christie has been a frequent speaker at similar events while he considers whether to seek the GOP nomination.
