Christie to stump for McCrory at Catawba College in Salisbury

SALISBURY – New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is coming to Salisbury in September to support Pat McCrory’s campaign for governor of North Carolina.
Christie will attend a ‘Carolina Comeback’ rally for the former Charlotte mayor at 3 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 13, McCrory’s campaign announced this afternoon. The event will be held at Catawba College, where McCrory graduated with degrees in education and political science.
“Governor Christie is a strong, inspirational and visionary leader who is not afraid of telling people the truth and treating people like adults,” McCrory said in a press release. “Unfortunately, while other governors from around the country have been showing leadership and implementing reforms, North Carolina has had a bystander in the governor’s office. I look forward to having Governor Christie with me on the campaign trail to talk about the kind of strong leadership and vision we need in the governor’s office to start a Carolina comeback.”
Christie will also attend a Charlotte fundraiser for the McCrory campaign on Sept. 13. Campaign officials said more scheduling details will be coming.
Christie raised money for McCrory’s campaign in November in Greensboro.
Christie also delivered Tuesday’s keynote speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla., which McCrory did not attend.
According to the Associated Press, McCrory has said he originally planned to go to the convention for one day but decided to spend time campaigning in western North Carolina.
