PALO ALTO, Calif.  (CBS) — New Jersey governor Chris Christie is headed to Silicon Valley today and will participate in an online Q&A session from the headquarters of social media behemoth Facebook.

Christie is traveling to California for a series of fundraisers and political events, including a live chat from Facebook’s headquarters in Palo Alto.  The hourlong online town hall starts at 6:30pm.  The public has been invited to submit questions via Christie’s official Facebook page.

During his visit to the “Tonight Show” last night, he did answer one question:

“Hypothetically you run for president, hypothetically Hillary Clinton runs for president, hypothetically do you think you could beat her?”

“Hypothetically, you bet,”  the governor replied.

This is not the governor’s first trip to the social network.  And last year, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg hosted a fundraiser for Christie’s re-election campaign.
