NJ Politics Roundup: Christie’s travels, heroin addiction, sports betting, and … – The Star-Ledger

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie was back on the road Tuesday, making a campaign appearance for a Republican gubernatorial candidate in New Hampshire.

Earlier in the week, he was in South Carolina, where voters said they’d like to hear more from Christie if he is going to get their support should he run for president in 2016. Gov. Nikki Haley also told reporters not to get ahead of themselves when asked if it’s possible she could be Christie’s running mate.

Meanwhile, Christie will visit Michigan and Pennsylvania next week.

And he will travel to Wisconsin later this month to join fellow Republican Gov. Scott Walker on the campaign trail.
