Leave it to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) to brighten the day of a bride-to-be.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Friday that Christie swept his way across Tennessee, attending events ranging from a fundraiser for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) in Memphis, to a state Republican Party dinner in Nashville.
The decision to have Christie speak at that dinner rubbed some Republicans the wrong way. Nashville Tea Party President Ben Cunningham told MSNBC the choice was "extremely unfortunate," while state Rep. Andy Holt said the move would "cloud" the party's future.
Once Christie stepped out of the political sphere on his trip, things were less cloudy. While at a restaurant in downtown Nashville with Gov. Bill Haslam (R), the Tennessean reports Christie crossed paths with a bachelorette party, taking some pictures with the ladies.
"Congratulations!" Christie told 25-year-old Jessica Levy, who told the Tennesseean she's getting married in three weeks.
