Christie Fundraises With Romney

Posted: Updated:

With every week that goes by, Governor Chris Christie is partaking in events that make him seem more like a potential presidential candidate than the Governor of New Jersey. This week was no exception, with Christie taking the stage in various town halls across the state. Last night Christie changed it up a bit by attending a Republican Governors Association conference in Boston with former governor and presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Alongside Romney, Christie fund raised for money for the Republican Party and reaffirmed his position as being a top Republican within the GOP.

During the event, Mitt Romney came out and openly expressed his support for Governor Christie, even after the recent bridgegate scandal that has engulfed his administration. Along with Christie’s fundraising efforts in Boston, his wife Mary Pat Christie was out and about in New Jersey to give out the 25th New Jersey hero award.

Mary Pat awarded Diane Taylor, the founder of Pass It Along, in recognition of her foundation’s efforts to bridge the gap between elderly people and current technologies. The foundation employs volunteer high school students to come in and assist elderly people to understand how to use such technologies like newer cell phones and IPad’s.

“I think it’s a great way to show pride in our state, and really honor people and lift them up, and its often small groups that are doing god’s work in so many ways,” Mary Pat said.

With both Christies out promoting a redefined image of the Garden State and their family, it’s hard not to consider these events to be niches at a potential Christie run for the White House in 2016.
