Christie to Campaign for Meehan

N.J. Gov. Christie, in high demand as campaigner, will stump, raise money for GOP congressional candidate Pat Meehan across the river in Pa.

Christie to Campaign for Meehan


New Jersey Gov. Christie, whose cost-cutting mantra has made him a rock-star in some Republican circles, will cross the state line to help fellow Republican Patrick Meehan in his bid for Congress in Pennsylvania’s Seventh District. The New Jersey governor will headline a fundraiser for Meehan at the Springfield Country Club on Sept. 20 at 6 p.m.

Christie, who defeated Democratic incumbent Jon S. Corzine last year, is in high demand for campaign appearances nationwide. This is the second time he’s come to help Meehan, who is running to replace U.S. Rep. Joe Sestak. Meehan, a former Delaware County District Attorney and U.S. Attorney, faces Democratic State Rep. Bryan Lentz.

The district, which includes nearly all of Delaware County and pieces of Montgomery and Chester Counties, is considered one of the most competitive races this year.
