Mark Zuckerburg raising money for Republican politician Chris Christie
If we didn’t know Mark Zuckerburg‘s political position before, we definitely do now. Buzzfeed.com confirmed from both camps [Zuck & Christie) that the Facebook founder is reportedly preparing to host a fundraiser inside of his private Palo Alto, Calif home for the politician.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will host a fundraiser next month in his Palo Alto home for Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, both camps confirmed to BuzzFeed.Christie, who is up for reelection this year, first met Zuckerberg in 2010, when the Silicon Valley billionaire donated $100 million to Newark public schools. But the backing from Facebook’s chairman and chief executive offers far more than money: It is a mark of how Christie, almost alone among his party, has emerged as the sort of natural figure who can cut deep into traditionally Democratic constituencies, like powerful young tech magnates.
