Gov. Chris Christie will spend Friday in Iowa urging Republicans to select Mitt Romney as their choice for the Republican presidential nomination when they hold their caucus on Tuesday.
The caucus is the equivalent of a presidential primary in other states and the former Massachusetts governor has emerged as the frontrunner in the race for the Hawkeye state’s GOP nomination.
Christie will spend the day meeting voters at restaurants, first at 8:05 a.m. in West Des Moines, in Cedar Rapids at 1 p.m., and in Dubuque at 5:20 p.m.
The governor endorsed Romney for the nomination and pledged to campaign for him whenever he can get away from state government business.
