Christie to attend meet-and-greet in South Carolina

New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie will have a chance to meet with potential supporters in South Carolina next week.

Lawmakers and business leaders in the early-voting state have been invited to a “meet and greet” Wednesday with Christie, who has said he intends to make a decision early this year on a 2016 run for president. Christie is scheduled to be in town for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s inauguration that day as part of a cross-country victory tour.

A copy of the invitation says the event is being hosted by Leighton Lord. The attorney says there is a lot of interest in South Carolina in the New Jersey governor.

The event was first reported by CNN.
