Christie, who is often mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2016, also has campaigned recently with Scott in Northwest Florida and South Florida. The GOP governors association has helped fund the “Let’s Get to Work” political committee, which plays an important role in Scott’s re-election bid.
