NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is heading for Mexico, officially on a trade mission for his state. But the trip has political benefits, too, helping him buff up his foreign policy credentials should he run for president in 2016.

The three-day trip beginning Wednesday is focused on strengthening New Jersey's ties with Mexico. Christie will meet with President Enrique Peña Nieto and other officials, mingle with Mexican business leaders and travel to Puebla, where he's scheduled to visit a local school.

Christie is just one of several Republicans traveling outside the U.S. ahead of a possible campaign against former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is in Israel, where Christie traveled in 2012. On Sunday, Texas Gov. Rick Perry heads to China.
