New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie greets guests after delivering a speach at the "An Evening at the Fair" event with Scott County Republicans in the Starlight Ballroom at The Mississippi Valley Fairgrounds on July 17, 2014 in Davenport, Iowa. In addition to the event at the fairgrounds, Christie attended two fundraisers for Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds and greeted patrons with them at MJ's Restaurant in Marion, Iowa. With this four-city Iowa tour many suggest Christie may be testing his support in the state with hopes of a 2016 Republican presidential nomination.  (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
