Christie's 2014 trip with 2016 implications

(CNN) - Chris Christie's jam packed schedule on Thursday afternoon and evening in New Hampshire was advertised as being all about the 2014 midterm elections.

But the visit by the Republican governor of New Jersey and potential GOP presidential contender also had plenty of 2016 implications, as Christie tries to get beyond the bridge controversy back home in the Garden State that's hurt his political standing.

First on CNN: New PAC launches ads to limit flood of outside spending

(CNN) - A new group that advocates full disclosure of campaign spending says it's going up Thursday with newspaper ads calling on both the Democratic and Republican candidates in three key congressional races to reject spending by outside groups.

CounterPAC, which is backed by around a half-dozen tech entrepreneurs, says the ads are the first step in what the group says is its national campaign pushing candidates to pledge to reject what it calls "dark" money expenditures by outside groups during this year's midterm elections.

Christie comes under attack as he heads to New Hampshire

(CNN) - On the eve of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's visit to New Hampshire, a conservative group is launching a television commercial that criticizes the potential 2016 Republican presidential contender over his Garden State record on judicial nominations.

The Judicial Crisis Network announced that it will go up starting Wednesday with a 30 second TV spot – as well as digital and radio ads – that attack Christie for not making the New Jersey Supreme Court more conservative. The group says the TV ad will run statewide for three days.
