New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a possible presidential candidate, is in Iowa Thursday for a series of fundraisers and campaign stops in the state with the first presidential caucuses.
Christie first held a fundraiser outside Des Moines for Gov. Terry Branstad. He then headed to Cedar Rapids for a fundraiser for Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulsen followed by a stop at MJ's Restaurant in Marion where Christie is set to greet diners and talk to reporters. His day will end with a rally for Gov. Branstad at the Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds in Davenport.
Christie has been traveling across the country as chair of the Republican Governors Association. The group has raised $60 million on Christie's watch and gives him a platform to test a presidential run.
