Gov. Christie heads West to fundraise for Romney

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is flying to the West Coast for a three-day campaign swing.

    Christie will make several stops in California to raise money for Mitt Romney today and tomorrow.

    He then heads to Seattle and Vancouver, Wash., to campaign for Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna.

     

    Christie is also set to make a campaign stop for Montana Gov. Rick Hill before flying back to New Jersey on Friday.

    The governor also was away last week campaigning for Romney.

    The presumptive GOP presidential nominee will be in New Jersey on Wednesday for a fundraising stop of his own. But he and Christie won’t cross paths.

    There’s been renewed chatter that Christie is still on Romney’s short list as a potential running mate. Christie deflected such questions yesterday.
