WAUKEE, Iowa - For the first time in nearly three years New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will visit Iowa Thursday. There are a lot of unknowns right now, but the main question everyone is asking is if Christie will run for president in 2016, and it’s unlikely we’ll get an answer anytime soon.

Christie is known to draw large crowds and for being an excellent fundraiser. As chairman of the Republican Governors Association he has helped in numerous fundraisers across the U.S.

However, one of his largest fundraisers Thursday will be for Governor Branstad who has already raised a significant amount more than his opponent, Jack Hatch, raising nearly $5 million.

Political analyst Kathie Obradovich says this often helps a potential candidate get free exposure and a chance to test the waters with voters. “You need an excuse to be here that won’t automatically scream, ‘I’m running for president!’ even though that may be in the back of their mind,” said Obradovich.

Christie will visit the home of the owners of the Kum & Go chain in Waukee before flying to Cedar Rapids and then Davenport with Gov. Branstad in tow.

        Don’t pity me, pity the bully who’s also corrupt and a liar that is so delusional he thinks he can still be President. I pity you for being so out of touch. A man who will shut down a bridge to get even with the folks in his state who didn’t support him needs to be jailed. If he ever did become President would he not retaliate against a state he did not win in the election? I would say most definitely. Thanks for your get well wishes ! I’m feeling better already:)

    One has to wonder how many boxers and pairs of pants Christie has to travel with. Just in case…….
