Christie to Attend Conservative Summit in Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will attend a conservative summit in Iowa next month, a spokesman for a group sponsoring the event said.

Jeff Marschner with Citizens United said Monday that Christie will attend the Iowa Freedom Summit on January 24 in Des Moines. The conservative group is sponsoring the event along with Rep. Steve King, an Iowa Republican.

Mike DuHaime, Christie’s top political adviser, said Christie will be appearing at the event because King invited him. He said it will be Christie’s first visit to Iowa since the midterm elections.
