CARLSBAD, N.M. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is set to arrive in New Mexico this week to campaign for Republican Gov. Susana Martinez as she runs for re-election.

Martinez campaign officials say Christie is planning to stop in Carlsbad and Artesia on Thursday.

Her campaign opened an online drawing earlier this month for a chance to see her and Christie at a meet-and-greet at a yet to be determined location.

The drawing, which did not require a campaign contribution, closed to entries Monday.

Christie previously lent his support for Martinez with a visit to eastern New Mexico in 2010.

A June 3 primary election will decide which of five Democratic candidates will challenge Martinez in November.

Martinez campaigned for Christie in his home state last fall.
