NEWARK, N.J. — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will swing through the South as part of another jam-packed month of travel boosting Republican candidates.

Christie is planning visits to more than half a dozen states in August, including Arkansas, Mississippi and Alabama. He has been traveling the country in his role as chair of the Republican Governors Association.

On Aug. 12, Christie will return to Maine to campaign for incumbent Gov. Paul LePage.

The next day he'll head to Birmingham, Ala., to boost Gov. Robert Bentley, then to Biloxi, Miss., for Gov. Phil Bryant.

He will be in Kansas and Oklahoma the next week for events with the governors there. He then goes to Arkansas on Aug. 27 for events in Fayetteville and Little Rock for the RGA and Republican gubernatorial nominee Asa Hutchinson.
