DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will appear in Iowa this week at a campaign event with Gov. Terry Branstad and congressional candidate Rod Blum.

Branstad’s campaign says Christie will speak at a rally in Cedar Rapids on Friday.

Branstad is running for a sixth non-consecutive term. Recent polls have showed him with a sizable lead against Democratic opponent Jack Hatch.

Blum is running in the state’s 1st Congressional District against Democrat Pat Murphy. The seat is open because Democratic U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley is running for Senate.

Christie, chairman of the Republican Governors Association, is also scheduled to headline Branstad’s birthday fundraiser in late October. He made a July visit to Iowa, sparking speculation about his presidential aspirations.
