New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will propose entitlement reform in New Hampshire next week.

The potential 2016 Republican presidential candidate will present a "detailed" plan to put the federal government's safety-net programs on a solid footing, his leadership political action committee said Thursday.

"Governor Christie will discuss the need to bring systemic reform to Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and Disability Insurance in order to create fairness and ensure these programs support those who need them most," the PAC, Leadership Matters for America, said in a statement.

Congress has long avoided the need to reform the government's big entitlement programs, although nearly every politician acknowledges they need major fiscal changes.

Christie hasn't yet formally announced a presidential run, but proposing a plan in the key presidential battleground state of New Hampshire is yet another strong signal of his intent to jump in the race. He'll announce the plan Tuesday at New Hampshire Institute of Politics in Manchester.
