New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who has endorsed Romney’s bid and campaigned for him last week in Iowa, will visit New Hampshire this weekend to stump for the former Massachusetts governor and Granite State frontrunner.

Joining him on the trail: Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty (R), who dropped his own presidential bid and endorsed Romney last year.

Christie and Pawlenty will hold an 11:45 a.m. event Sunday at the Rochester Opera House in Rochester, N.H.

Then Christie will move on to Exeter, where he’ll join Romney for a 5:55 p.m. rally at Exeter High School.

The trip will mark a return visit for Christie to New Hampshire, where he endorsed Romney at an October event in Lebanon.
