New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to headline event for Gov. Tom Corbett in Pennsylvania
Weekend event to be headlined by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will headline a weekend event for Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett and more than 100 political supporters.
The event at the Bedford Springs Resort in southwestern Pennsylvania is an opportunity for supporters of Corbett, a Republican, to discuss his upcoming campaign for re-election and enjoy speeches by Christie, U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey and conservative commentator Fred Barnes, said Corbett's campaign manager, Mike Barley.
Corbett's preparing for his 2014 re-election bid. He's facing headwinds, with lackluster support in independent polls and an administration that's trying to re-tool following the collapse of his major agenda items in the Republican-controlled Legislature.
About a half-dozen Democrats are planning to seek the party nomination to challenge Corbett. Pennsylvania's best-known Democrats, including U.S. Sen. Bob Casey, aren't running.
