Gov. Christie is expected to visit Jefferson Township this week to gain a political boost from area hunters and fishers, the New Jersey Herald reported.
The New Jersey Outdoor Alliance, a political action committee dedicated to hunting, fishing and conservation issues, is hosting a rally for Christie, who is running for re-election against Democratic nominee Barbara Buono. The group hopes the event will bring hundreds of Garden State sportsmen from across the state to the event at the Camp Jefferson Amphitheatre, Weldon Road, at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, the article said.
According to the Christie campaign, the candidate's trip to J-Town is part of a scheduled week-long bus tour. The article said that many sportsmen have supported the governor—and will attend Sunday's rally—because of his stated pledge to protect their rights to hunt and fish.
