PHOENIX (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be back in Arizona and New Mexico for the second time this month to try to rally support for Republican governor candidates Doug Ducey and Susana Martinez.
Christie will headline campaign events in his role as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
The potential GOP presidential candidate will attend two Ducey events early Thursday, one in Paradise Valley, Arizona, and one in Scottsdale. He then jets off to Farmington, New Mexico, for a noon campaign event for Gov. Susana Martinez as she seeks re-election.
Christie then heads to Colorado and Iowa to stump for Republican governor's candidates in those states the same day.
Christie is using his position as chairman of the Republican governors group to help raise money for candidates.
