Washington (CNN) - From Chicago, to the nation's capital, to Port Monmouth, New Jersey, it will be a high-profile week for Gov. Chris Christie, including at least two events where he will face questions.
It is a dual purpose trip to Chicago on Tuesday, as Christie begins the process of trying to repair damage to his national profile. He'll raise money for the Republican Governors Association like his previous RGA trips: behind closed doors and out of the public eye.
But unlike his recent visits to Florida and Texas, Christie also has an event in front of television cameras on this swing. He'll speak to the Economic Club of Chicago at a downtown hotel, which includes questions from audience members.
Then, back home in New Jersey Thursday, he will hold his first town hall meeting since the emails in the George Washington Bridge controversy were made public.
His office bills the event, at a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Port Monmouth, as his 110th town hall since becoming governor. It will be focused on Superstorm Sandy recovery efforts, and he'll be joined by several state officials to discuss plans for a second round of federal relief funds. There will be an opportunity for questions from attendees.
Later that day, Christie comes to Washington D.C. for a fundraising event. He then speaks to a New Jersey tradition, the 77th state Chamber of Commerce Congressional delegation. State political and business leaders will attend the dinner, that includes the state's U.S. senators and House members.
Democrats again plan to use the week to try to highlight Christie's political troubles. The liberal group Progressive Change Campaign Committee will hold a news conference Tuesday at the George Washington Bridge. They say they will have people who were affected by the September access lane closures.
The Democratic National Committee will hold a shadow news conference Tuesday during his Chicago trip as well, similar to events they did during Christie's two prior RGA trips.
Meanwhile, the joint legislative committee investigating Christie's administration will meet Monday in a closed door session "to update members concerning the status of the investigation." More documents under subpoena are expected to be submitted this week.
