New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be in Chicago next week to stump for Republican gubernatorial candidate Bruce Rauner.
Christie is booked to headline a fund-raiser July 25 at the Chicago Hilton where tickets run from $500 to $2,500.
The visit comes in the midst of a heated gubernatorial election — one that is being watched nationwide, with millions of dollars poured in from Republican and Democraticnational organizations.
Nabbing a national figure like Christie helps Rauner combat the likes of President Obama, who has committed to boosting Quinn’s candidacy.
