Christie, a Republican who is considering a run for president and former head of the Republican Governors Association, will appear at a “meet and greet” event with Vitter at 4 p.m. According to Vitter’s campaign, Team Vitter will serve crawfish and jambalaya, and attendees who bring 10 friends can get a picture with the Republican duo.
According to a release from Christie’s Leadership Matters for America PAC, the New Jersey governor also will appear at a private event benefiting the pro-Vitter Fund for Louisiana’s Future PAC at an undisclosed location in Baton Rouge beginning at 5:30 p.m.
The events are among Christie’s first public appearances since charges were announced Friday against a trio of top Christie allies in a bridge closing scandal.
According to the email from Leadership Matters for America PAC, Christie also will host a meet and greet with Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant earlier on Tuesday, as well as a closed-door event with the Mississippi Republican Party.
