Mark Zuckerberg Holding Fundraiser for NJ Governor Chris Christie

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is holding a big fundraiser for NJ Governor Chris Christie, the Washington Post reports:

Cnn_christieZuckerberg previously donated $100 million to the Newark school system after striking up a friendship with Newark Mayor Cory Booker (D). Booker, Christie, and Zuckerberg announced the donation together on “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” There has been some controversy over how that money has been spent.

“Mark and [his wife] Priscilla have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system,” Facebook spokeswoman Sarah Feinberg said in a statement. “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.”

According to the Wall Street Journal, the Feb. 13 event will be the first campaign fundraiser at Zuckerberg’s home. Facebook’s corporate PAC donates to both parties but currently tilts slightly in favor of Republicans.

Does that get a "like"?

    I always thought UFFDA was Mary? Since they seem to always stick up for Mary, even when she says completely ignorant things. I'm confused now.

  2. Christie thought Romney was the best thing for our country. And said many times over that Romney's principles were his and ones he agreed with. That is a frightening thought, and won't be sitting in that white house.

  4. Chris Christie is Fox News and companies answer to defeating liberalism and the Democratic party. They realize they have no hope outside this guy, and he is just as much an extension of them.

  6. Let's get one thing straight, civil unions are not the same as marriage and the plethora of rights that seperates them tells you that. More over, with many Republicans now supporting marriage equality, no longer is being against same sex marriage but for civil unions suddenly this forward- moderate mentality.
    Second, conservatives need this man to win. He's their last great hope.

    No, thank you.
