DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Chris Christie is set to give a speech on education when he comes to Iowa next week.

Samantha Smith, a spokeswoman for Christie's political action committee, said Wednesday that the Republican New Jersey governor and potential 2016 presidential candidate will give the speech in Ames on June 11.

Christie is slated to speak at the Polk County Republicans' spring dinner that night. His trip will also likely include a town hall meeting.

The trip will be Christie's fifth to Iowa this year. He was last here in early March for a candidate forum and has two paid staffers in the state.

Christie is trying to demonstrate that he remains a top 2016 prospect in an increasingly crowded field.
