NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is headlining the Tennessee Republican Party's annual fundraiser in Nashville on Friday evening.

But that's not Christie's only stop in Tennessee. He starts out the day at a Republican Governors Association event in Memphis, followed by a joint appearance with U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander. Alexander is opening his re-election campaign's West Tennessee office in the Memphis suburb of Germantown.

Christie then heads to Nashville, where he's scheduled to visit a barbeque restaurant with Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and then on to the GOP fundraiser at the Nashville convention center.

Christie is fighting to recover from a traffic scandal in New Jersey that has deflated enthusiasm for a potential presidential bid in 2016, maintaining an aggressive national travel schedule and posting strong fundraising totals.
