New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is visiting Israel in his first official overseas trip.

Christie is often touted as a potential Republican vice presidential candidate in this year's U.S. elections. His visit to Israel could raise speculation that he is positioning himself for that spot.

Christie meets Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Monday. His office said that he is to meet Israeli President Shimon Peres on Tuesday and then travel to Jordan later this week for a visit with Jordan's King Abdullah II.

Christie is traveling with his family and a delegation of 13 business and religious leaders on what is primarily a trade mission. While in Israel, he plans to tour a pharmaceutical facility, participate in a business round-table and visit a school.
