The freshman senator, a tea party favorite thought to be weighing a 2016 presidential bid, is scheduled to headline an Aug. 23 fundraiser for the New Hampshire GOP.

The trip represents Cruz’s first visit to New Hampshire, which is expected to host the nation’s first presidential primary. He has already visited South Carolina and has summer stops planned for Iowa and Florida.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie made several campaign appearances in New Hampshire for Mitt Romney. He also campaigned for Republican candidate for Governor Ovid Lamontagne in 2012, who lost the election to  Democrat Maggie Hassan.

The 42-year-old senator began serving his first Senate term in January.
