Is Christie's Barnstorming a Preview of 2016?

Matt Katz | September 29, 2014

Over the next eight days, Gov. Chris Christie will visit six states to campaign for Republican candidates.

The governor spent the first part of his Monday stumping for Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker before departing for Ohio, where he hosted a rally for Gov.Jon Kasich and a $1,000-a-head fundraiser.

Observers say Christie's tour is a preview of what his future presidential campaign will look like. 

Ohio doesn't have a close governor's race, but it is arguably the country's most important state when it comes to deciding presidential elections. 

Christie's advisers dismiss any presidential politics playing into the visit, saying Christie's trip to the Buckeye State has more to do with his long relationship with Kasich
