Chris Christie, New Jersey governor and potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate will be the guest at a Mississippi Republican Party fundraiser lunch on May 5.

The event is a fundraiser for the state GOP’s 2015 Victory Fund to “retain the party’s hold on seven of the eight statewide offices, win the attorney general’s seat, protect and expand our legislative majorities and take over county offices held by Democrats,” according to a state GOP news release.
