SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is heading to California as part of a national fundraising and self-promotion tour with a high-dollar fundraiser in the liberal heart of Democratic California.

He also will be helping the party's long-shot nominee for governor who bested a tea party contender during last week's primary.

Christie, chairman of the Republican Governors Association and a potential 2016 presidential candidate, swings through San Francisco on Friday.

He has a morning appearance scheduled at a local flower business with California gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari before he heads to a $10,000-a-plate luncheon fundraiser for the governors association.

The stop is part of a cross-country revival tour in which Christie is trying to shore up his reputation after the bridge-closing political scandal at home dented his national aspirations.
