New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be the keynote speaker at next month’s convention of the California Republican Party.
Organizers made the announcement Friday describing Christie as “a great example of Republican leadership.”
In a prepared release, Christie said, “I’m excited to be joining Republicans in California as we plan for the years ahead and look to build upon the successes of 2014.”
Just last week, Christie told reporters he was undecided on his future plans and whether they include entering in the 2016 presidential race. According to NBC News, Christie said he will not be rushed, "so everybody just calm down."
The outspoken governor has been criticized recently over gifts he received from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, how he handled a heckler at a Hurricane Sandy recovery event and his decision to issue an Ebola quarantine after the nurse complained about her treatment.
Christie will speak at the luncheon on Saturday, Feb. 28 at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento.
