(CNN) - Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey and Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia–two governors associated with recent traffic controversies–will appear together at a fundraiser next month for the Republican Governors Association.
Christie will continue his fundraising swing as RGA chairman, traveling to Atlanta for the private March 7 luncheon, according to Deal's campaign.

A Republican familiar with the fundraising also confirmed the event.
The RGA has brought in a record $18 million since Christie became chairman of the organization in November.
Deal is up for re-election this year and could likely face Democratic state Sen. Jason Carter, the grandson of former President Jimmy Carter, in the November election.
The incumbent governor took some heat when ice and a few inches of snow paralyzed Atlanta and embarrassed the state last month. Deal apologized for state resources not being ready to handle the bad weather. When a powerful ice storm struck two weeks later, the state was more prepared.
Meanwhile, in New Jersey, a state legislative committee and the U.S. Attorney's Office are investigating whether some of Christie's top aides orchestrated traffic gridlock in Fort Lee, New Jersey, as a way to politically punish the city's Democratic mayor for not supporting Christie's re-election bid.
Christie has denied knowing about the traffic jam until after it occurred and only through media reports. He also denies knowing anything about the alleged political payback scheme.
The controversy hasn't stopped Christie from maintaining his duties as RGA chairman. The Republican governor, who won re-election in November by a landslide, has traveled to Florida, Texas, New York and Illinois in the past six weeks for fundraising efforts.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution first reported the upcoming RGA event.
Also the week of the Atlanta fundraiser, Christie is scheduled to appear at the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual gathering of grassroots activists, in the Washington area. And while in Georgia, Christie will go to the American Enterprise Institute's World Forum in Sea Island.
