in Uncategorized by

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie once again visits the Sunshine State for a series of get-out-the-vote rallies with Gov. Rick Scott on Sunday and Monday.

Christie serves as chair of the Republican Governor’s Association, which recently gave another $1.5 million to Scott’s “Let’s Get to Work” campaign committee. After his Florida tour, Christie heads to Connecticut to support the gubernatorial campaign of Tom Foley.

Christie and Scott will start Sunday early, with an 8:30 a.m. church service in Miami, followed by another service in Pembroke Pines at 11:30 a.m. Both church events are closed to the press.

At 1 p.m., the pair visit a get-out-the-vote event in Plantation, with a Republican Jewish Coalition meeting in Boca Raton at 2:45 p.m. Those rallies are open to the public.

Sunday evening, Christie and Scott will attend a pair of private events, one at 6 p.m. and the other at 7:45 p.m., both in Palm Beach.

On Monday, Christie and Scott begin the day with an 8 a.m. rally in Wellington, followed by an 11 a.m. event in Melbourne. At 2:15 p.m., the pair will then be in Ormond Beach, before Christie heads back north.

All three Monday events are open to the public. Press inquiries can be made through Greg Blair at gblair@scottforflorida.com.
