New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is returning to New Hampshire as he struggles to press forward with a likely presidential bid following indictments in the 2013 George Washington Bridge scandal.

The Republican will be in the early-voting state Thursday and Friday for several events.

The trip will include a visit to a drug treatment center and a keynote speech at a Lincoln Day dinner. He'll also lead another happy hour-timed town hall Friday at Fury's Publick House bar in Dover.

The trip marks Christie's first to New Hampshire since two former aides were indicted and another pleaded guilty to charges stemming from a scheme to shut down access lanes to the bridge. It allegedly was done to punish the mayor of a Democratic town who didn't endorse Christie's re-election.
