New Jersey’s Republican Gov. Chris Christie is about to cash in on his recent oral pleasuring of the Obama administration as well as his subsequent disparagement of his own party before, during and following election 2012. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg plans to hold a February 13 fundraiser at the billionaire’s home in Palo Alto, California. Zuckerberg is said to have appreciation for Christie’s education reform efforts.
According to Buzzfeed, Facebook spokeswoman Sarah Feinberg said:
“Mark and (his wife) Priscilla have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system. They admire his leadership on education reform and other issues and look forward to continuing their important work together on behalf of Newark’s school children. Mark and Priscilla are happy to host him at their home to support his re-election.”
Christie campaign adviser Bill Palatucci stated that the west coast excursion will be “the beginning of a number of out-of-state trips we’ll be having to raise money to support the Governor’s re-election effort. We announced last week that we will not be taking New Jersey’s matching funds so we can raise as much as we can from donors.”
The facebook pajama party isn’t the only liberal support Christie’s now enjoying – earlier this week he landed another big endorsement from the Port Authority Police Benevolent Association–an extremely rare brass ring for a Republican. Last month Christie also secured the backing of the Laborers International Union of North America.
In the New Jersey gubernatorial race, Christie is the overwhelming favorite and with these liberal dump trucks full of cash and high fives from the left, he’s a sure thing.
Look for Christie to be in the 2016 presidential primaries, running as a “moderate” republican.
