Thank you, Gov. Chris Christie.
The top New York financial boosters of the pugnacious New Jersey governor helped raise $375,000 for Mitt Romney’s campaign during a lunch at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel yesterday.
The donors — including billionaire Ken Langone and former NYSE chief Richard Grasso — initially backed a Christie bid for the White House but switched to Romney when Christie declined to run.
Romney even got some pinstripe love. Yankee President Randy Levine was one of the 140 donors kicking in $2,500 to help the former governor of Massachusetts, the home of Red Sox Nation.
(emphasis added )
Christie said he was going to start generating cash for Romney.
He’s a man of his word.
He’ll be hosting another fundraiser for The Gov on December 12th.
