Gov. Chris Christie will co-host the Today Show on May 24, when the show visits the New Jersey shore.
Christie has not been afraid to use his celebrity as governor and as a candidate for re-election. To date, he has mingled with both media and Hollywood royalty as part of his fundraising efforts.
But an hour of television time will no doubt raise questions in the camp of his opponent, state Sen. Barbara Buono.
New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter Tweeted the announcement this morning.
