Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who previously ran for the GOP nomination in 2016, is scheduled to speak at an event in New Hampshire on March 27. Christie is widely believed to be considering placing another bid on the White House in 2024.

The town hall-style event at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at Saint Anselm College is going to provide Christie with the opportunity to make an appearance in one of the early-voting states that are important for the Republican nomination process.

Christie is not the only potential GOP candidate to have been planning trips in the early-voting states. In fact, both Former Vice President Mike Pence and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), who are believed to be considering a presidential bid for 2024 have visited Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina in the past few months.

The GOP candidates who have announced their presidential bid, including Former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, and conservative author Vivek Ramaswamy have all either visited or are planning visits to the early-voting states.

Christie, who had previously entered the 2016 presidential race, had withdrawn himself from the primary in 2016. He had previously served as the governor in a traditionally blue state. However, following his withdrawal, his relationship with Trump continued to drift further apart.

Over the past few years, Christie has made a number of media appearances and has served as a political commentator for ABC.
