The snow and cold isn’t keeping New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie away from the early voting state of New Hampshire as he considers a 2016 presidential run.
Christie, a Republican, is returning to New Hampshire on Monday to speak at the Concord and Merrimack County Republican parties’ annual Lincoln Reagan dinner. This is Christie’s first trip to New Hampshire since the November election, during which he visited the state five times to campaign with Republican gubernatorial nominee Walt Havenstein.
Christie is serving his second term as governor of New Jersey and is considering a presidential bid. He’s recently delivered speeches in Iowa, another early state in the presidential nominating process, and Illinois. February kicks off a string of political visits from Republicans who are deciding whether to run for president.
