New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is hitting the campaign trail hard in the last week before Tuesday’s midterm election. Christie, head of the Republican Governor’s Association, will be in 19 states between now and election day, according to a press release from the RGA.

Governor Christie’s popularity has rebounded significantly since he was cleared of any wrongdoing in the “Bridgegate” scandal, and he’s been a media magnet on the trail. With his stock on the rise again, Christie will be keeping a busy schedule in the five days before the polls officially open, and racking up potential political favors along the way.

Governor Christie’s schedule is as follows:

– Doug Doucey in Paradise Valley and Scottsdale, Ariz.
– Governor Susanna Martinez in Farmington, N.M.
– Bob Beauprez in Colorado Springs, Colo.
– Terry Branstad in Burlington, Iowa.

– Asa Hutchinson, Tom Cotton, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour in Jonesboro, Ark.
– Governor Sam Brownback, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour in Kansas City, Kan.
– Governor Scott Walker and former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour in Wausau and Rhinelander, Wis.

– Governor John Kasich and former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour in Columbus, Ohio.
– Governor Nathan Deal in Gainesville, Ga.
– Governor Rick Scott in Naples, Fla.

– Governor Nikki Haley in Spartanburg, S.C.
– Bruce Rauner in East Alton, Ill.
– Larry Hogan in Md.
– Governor Tom Corbett at the Corbett For Governor rally in Ivyland, Penn.

– Allan Fung in Cranston, R.I.
– Governor Rick Snyder at a Rick For Michigan field office tour stop in Utica, Mich.
– Walt Havenstein at a rally in New London, N.H.
– Tom Foley at a Foley For Governor rally in Windsor Locks, Conn.
– Governor Paul LePage at a LePage For Governor rally in Portland, Maine.

These races will be viewed as a report card of Christie’s viability in the 2016 presidential race. Depending on their outcomes, some of which are very close, Christie could end up with a pocket full of favors should he decide to pursue higher office.
