Gov. Chris Christie has three more out-of-state fundraisers for GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney scheduled Wednesday, bringing the total of events the governor has attended this week to six.
The governor begins the day at 8 a.m. with a Washington, D.C. event before heading into President Obama’s back yard for a noon fundraiser in Chicago. Christie will close the day with a 6 p.m. appearance in Wayzata, Minn. on behalf of Romney.
Christie is arguably Romney’s most sought after surrogate and earlier this year helped raise $1.7 million for the nominee at two local fundraisers. Speculation over Christie as a potential running mate for Romney has waxed and waned in recent weeks, with the governor doing little to quell the conjecture.
At an appearance in Manasquan this week, Christie said he does not believe he will be Romney’s choice and pundits have speculated that the governor’s temperament would make him too much of a wild card for the conservative Romney campaign.
