WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A day after he gave a primetime speech at the Republican National Convention comes word New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will help a fellow Republican try and win the same office in North Carolina.

Pat McCrory’s campaign says Christie will attend a McCrory fundraiser at a home in Charlotte September 13.

“Gov. Christie is a strong, inspirational and visionary leader who is not afraid of telling people the truth and treating people like adults,” McCrory said in a statement. “Unfortunately, while other governors from around the country have been showing leadership and implementing reforms, North Carolina has had a bystander in the governor’s office. I look forward to having Gov. Christie with me on the campaign trail to talk about the kind of strong leadership and vision we need in the governor’s office to start a Carolina comeback.”

Tickets to the event range from $250 per person to $4,000 per couple.
