BATON ROUGE - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a rising national GOP star, is helping Louisiana's Republican Party fundraise for the fall elections.

Christie and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal will hold a rally Thursday afternoon before heading to the private cash-generating event for the state GOP, where tickets range from $10,000 to $100,000.

Both men are prominent Republicans on the national scene. Jindal campaigned for the New Jersey governor in 2009.

Christie has become a favorite among some Republicans pushing him to run for the GOP nomination to challenge President Barack Obama in 2012 - but Christie has said he's not running for president.

Jindal has already made his pick for the 2012 Republican nomination, endorsing Texas Gov. Rick Perry and sending a fundraising letter on his behalf this week.
