Chris Christie visits Baton Rouge for David Vitter Tuesday
BATON ROUGE - New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will make two campaign stops in the area for Senator David Vitter Tuesday.
Christie will join Vitter, who is running for governor, at an open event at a local brewery then attend a private reception. Earlier in the day, Christie is set to meet with republicans and leaders in Mississippi.
The events come days after Christie allies were implicated in a scheme to close lanes of the George Washington Bridge for political purposes. Monday, a government appointee and Christie's former deputy chief of staff, Bridget Kelly, pleaded not guilty to charges related to the event. Friday, Christie ally David Wildstein pleaded guilty. Christie has not been implicated in the plot.
