Mark Zuckerberg To Host A Fundraiser For Chris Christie

Posted Jan 24, 2013

Facebook CEO and co-founder Mark Zuckerberg will be hosting a fundraiser for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.  Zuckerberg will be hosting the fundraiser with his wife Priscilla Chan.  The two will be hosting the fundraiser at their home in Palo Alto, California on February 13th.  The attendees will include friends and business contacts of the two.  Donations will be capped at $3,800, which is the limit in New Jersey.

Zuckerberg and Christie met when Zuckerberg made a $100 million contribution to Newark public schools.  Zuckerberg also approached Christie’s team to find out if he can help the governor reach a third term.  After Hurricane Sandy, Governor Christie’s approval rating hit 74% among all New Jersey residents and 56% among Democrats.
