OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie plans a trip to Oklahoma next month for a campaign fundraiser for fellow Republican Gov. Mary Fallin.

Fallin's campaign announced Tuesday that Christie would attend a "birthday celebration" for Fallin, who is running for her second term as Oklahoma governor next year. The event is set for Dec. 5 in Oklahoma City, four days before Fallin's birthday.

Tickets start at $125 per person for the campaign fundraiser.

Fallin announced her re-election campaign last month. R.J. Harris has filed to run as a Democrat in the race, though he's previously run for office as a Republican and an independent.

Christie, who was easily re-elected governor this month, is widely viewed as a likely 2016 presidential candidate.
