New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will visit Minnesota next week to raise money for his presidential campaign. Christie will attend a fundraiser on Thursday, September 10, at the Minikahda Club, said businessman Scott Honour, who is co-hosting the event with Wheelock Whitney and Bonnie Speer McGrath.

Honour described Christie as "the real leader in the room" among the Republican presidential candidates. Christie, said Honour, "has offered the most substaintive policy of any candidate." 

Christie will not be the only Republican presidential candidate making a visit to Minnesota next week. 

Florida U.S. Senator Marco Rubio will also be in Minnesota next Thursday to raise money for his presidential campaign. Rubio will attend lunchtime fundraiser at the Minneapolis Club.
