DENVER - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is visiting political battleground Colorado for a fundraiser with the state's GOP gubernatorial candidate, Bob Beauprez, before heading to Aspen for events with other party leaders.
Christie will be at a noon fundraiser in Denver Wednesday for the Republican Governor's Association, which Christie chairs. Afterward, he'll be visiting a downtown Denver restaurant with Beauprez. Republican voters last month picked Beauprez to challenge Democratic Gov. John Hickenlooper in November.
Christie will be in Aspen Wednesday evening and Thursday for RGA events. One of them is a discussion with Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, and Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback.
