SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will be in southwest Missouri later this month to raise money for Republican gubernatorial nominee Dave Spence.

The Springfield News-Leader reports the Spence campaign confirmed Monday that Christie will speak at a fundraiser in the city the afternoon of Sept. 23.

Spence is challenging Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon.

Spence campaign manager Jared Craighead told The News-Leader some details are still being worked out, including the fundraiser's location.

An email from the Greene County Republican Committee announcing the event said tickets for the general reception are $500 per person. For $10,000, donors may attend a private roundtable with Christie before the reception.

A Spence fundraiser with Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell last month in St. Louis drew 125 people and raised more than $150,000.
