BREAKING: Corbett and Christie to Appear Together on Friday
PoliticsPA has obtained an invitation stating that Christie, the GOP Governor of New Jersey and potential 2016 contender, will be attending a fundraiser for Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati. The event will take place tomorrow from noon to 1:00.
PoliticsPA has also learned from multiple sources that on his swing Christie and Corbett will take a tour of Pittsburgh together.
The two men last appeared together in January when Gov. Corbett made a point to defend the New Jersey Governor in the midst of the George Washington Bridge controversy.
“Gov. Corbett will absolutely welcome and appreciate Gov. Christie’s support on the campaign trail this year,” Corbett’s Campaign Manager Mike Barley said at the time.
Christie is currently chair of the Republican Governor’s Association so his appearance shouldn’t be a surprise. Nonetheless, in the week that has been less than ideal, Corbett will surely welcome the arrival of a political ally.
Update: The Corbett campaign has confirmed that the Governor will welcome Gov. Chris Christie to Pittsburgh tomorrow.
