Chris Christie heading to Ohio in September


NEWARK, New Jersey — Gov. Chris Christie has added another politically important state to his fundraising tour for fellow GOP candidates.

The chairman of the Republican Governors Association will visit Ohio, a key swing state, at the end of September.

Christie is scheduled to attend a Summit County Republican Party fundraising dinner on Sept. 29.

A save-the-date invitation provided by the group says tickets for the Akron event will go for $300.

Christie says his schedule next month will also include a return to Maine to campaign for Gov. Paul LePage as well as stops in South Carolina and North Carolina.

He'll be starting the month with a three-day foreign trade mission to Mexico.

Christie is considering a run for the White House in 2016.
