Christie heads to Hawkeye state on fundraising swing

Gov. Chris Christie will head to Iowa on Thursday for a pair of fundraisers before jetting to Washington D.C. Friday to raise money for the National Republican Congressional Committee.

While in Iowa, Christie will head to Sioux City to help raise money for U.S. Rep. Steve King, who is locked in a battle with former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack. King has a slight lead in recent polling, but took fire from Democrats recently when he told an Iowa reporter that he had never heard of pregnancy resulting from statutory rape or incest. 

“Well I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way and I’d be open to discussion about that subject matter,”  King told KMEG-TV.

Christie will then head to Altoona for an event to raise cash for Team Iowa PAC.

On Friday, the governor will attend a fundraiser for the NRCC.
