CHRISTIE TO VISIT ISRAEL THIS WEEK

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie will be in Jerusalem this week. Christie and his family are expected to arrive in Jerusalem on Monday morning that will kick off a trip through Israel. Christie says he is going because it’s important for a New Jersey governor to have a great understanding and relationship with Israel given the makeup of the Garden State. Christie is shrugging off suggestions that the trip is to line up a vice presidential nomination by likely republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
