WASHINGTON — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are making overlapping trips to Mexico this week, signifying the importance of connecting with Hispanic voters ahead of potential presidential campaigns in 2016.

Clinton and Christie are not expected to cross paths in Mexico.

Christie arrived in Mexico City on Wednesday for three days of events with business leaders and a meeting with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto.

Clinton is scheduled to be in Mexico City on Friday to attend an annual event hosted by a financial supporter of the Clinton Foundation, billionaire Carlos Slim. The event will honor scholarship students helped by Slim's foundation.

Christie will be in Puebla on Friday, and a Christie spokeswoman says the governor and Clinton are not crossing paths.
