(AP) – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has made another trip to Kansas to campaign for Republican Gov. Sam Brownback re-election bid.
Christie is chairman of the Republican Governors Association. He joined Brownback on Monday at Freddy’s Frozen Custard in Wichita where he visited with restaurant patrons.
A private fundraising event was scheduled later Monday.
Brownback is locked in a tough race with Democratic challenger Paul Davis amid voters’ concerns about massive tax cuts that have created budget shortfalls.
But Christie said indications from several polls show Kansas voters are swinging toward Brownback as they consider what he called the positive record of Brownback’s first term in office.
Christie also made a campaign stop Monday in Minnesota, with others planned Tuesday in in Maine and Connecticut.
