Mark Zuckerberg to Host Chris Christie Fundraiser

The Facebook CEO will get the Jersey guv some cash

Mark Zuckerberg(SFist)

Mark Zuckerberg continues to give New Jersey all kinds of civic love. First, he became friends with Newark Mayor Cory Booker. Then he donated $100 million to the Newark school system. Zuckerberg is also numbered among those billionaires who have pledged to give half of his/her estate to charity. Now he will host a fundraiser for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

From the WaPo:

“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.

The next obvious move: Repair the rift between Bruce Springsteen and Chris Christie.
