New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) will make the first foreign trip of his second term next month, traveling to Mexico, where he will meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto.  

Christie will lead a delegation of New Jersey business, pharmaceutical and education leaders to Mexico from Sept. 3-5, his office said Thursday. In addition to huddling with the Mexican president, the governor will chat with local business leaders and government officials. He'll tour Mexican companies, too.

It's typical for potential presidential candidates like Christie travel abroad in an effort to boost their foreign policy bona fides. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), another potential contender, is headed to a medical mission in Guatemala later this month.

Christie's last foreign trip was to Israel in 2012. He was reelected in 2013.
