STATE — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will headline a $100 per person fundraising event for former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad in Des Moines on Oct. 4.
Since 1972, the Iowa caucuses have been the first major electoral event of the nominating process for President.
Christie, elected less than one year ago, has quickly gained a reputation as a national leader within the Republican Party.
“I’m excited to welcome Governor Christie to Iowa,” said former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad. “He has been a pioneering leader in New Jersey with regard to cleaning up the state’s budget and again putting his state on the right track. I’m happy to have his support and am looking forward to a great event.”
