New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie held a rally for Gov. Butch Otter Friday night at The Coeur d'Alene Resort. The rally drew more than 200 people to hear Christie discuss the state of the Republican Party and why Idahoans should re-elect Otter next year. “I am really happy to be back here in Idaho,” Christie said. “No, I didn't make a mistake. No, I have been here for the past three summers. “Me, Mary Pat and all four of our children have come to vacation in the summer here in Idaho and we have loved every minute of it, so I am glad to be back.” Christie said he and his wife became good friends with Butch and Lori Otter back in 2010 after Christie was elected governor and joined the Republican Governor's Association, which he now chairs/Jeff Selle, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: How does Christie's appearance help Otter's re-election campaign?
