DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Chris Christie is coming to Iowa soon for a trip that will likely include one of his famed town hall meetings.
Samantha Smith, a spokeswoman for Christie’s political action committee, said Wednesday that the Republican New Jersey governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate will be in the leadoff caucus state in early June. He is slated to speak at the Polk County Republicans’ spring dinner. Smith said the appearance will be part of a longer trip that will likely include a town hall meeting and some other stops.
The trip will be Christie’s fifth to Iowa this year. He was last here in early March for a candidate forum.
Polk County GOP Chairman Will Rogers praised Christie as a “straight shooter.” He said the group is excited to see him.
