Republican officials said Tuesday that Christie will headline an event on Thursday afternoon that will support GOP candidates such as gubernatorial hopeful Rob McKenna. Christie is widely viewed as a possible vice presidential pick for party nominee Mitt Romney.
The event is designed to kick off the 2012 general election race. Republicans are hopeful that McKenna can end their three-decade slump in Washington gubernatorial races.
