ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Gov. Susana Martinez is in New Jersey today, lending a hand to fellow Republican Gov. Chris Christie on the eve of New Jersey’s gubernatorial election.
Martinez, who has traveled out of state frequently in recent months, flew to the Garden State on Sunday, her political adviser Jay McCleskey said. She is scheduled to return to New Mexico tomorrow.
The two governors will travel on Christie’s campaign bus today, making stops at various rallies and campaign centers around the state, McCleskey said.
Christie, who is widely expected to win re-election as New Jersey’s governor and is seen as a possible 2016 GOP presidential candidate, joined Martinez on the campaign trail in New Mexico during the 2010 election cycle.
A Christie campaign spokesman told the Newark-based Star-Ledger that having Martinez on the campaign trail would, “help us tell our story and bolster our vision for the next four years.”
Martinez’s travel costs for the trip are being paid for by the Christie campaign, McCleskey said.
