Buttressed by trips to Mississippi and New Hampshire, Gov. Chris Christie announced today that he will travel north to Sussex County new week for his 137th town hall.
Taking place at the Sussex County Technical School in Sparta, it will be Christie’s first in-state town hall in two weeks. The governor’s office told NJ.com, which points out that Christie is keeping a low profile in the state this week, that scheduling conflicts don’t always make it possible to plan the event.
Last week, Christie held his first open-ended press availability in six moths during a bill signing in New Brunswick, two days before the federal investigation into Bridgegate came to a head with the indictments of three officials once belonging to the governor’s inner circle.
Today, the presidential prospect is traveling to Mississippi and Louisiana to meet with Republican party leaders and attend local fundraisers. On Thursday, he’ll head up to New Hampshire for a second two-day swing through the first-in-the-nation primary state in two months.
He’ll hold another town hall there as well.
