Ever since his betrayal of Mitt Romney a week before the election, Chris Christie has become a darling of the Left. Now many wealthy Progressives are putting their money with their mouth is. Christie is now receiving political donations from Leftist fundraisers.
Chris Christie’s well-publicized three-day campaign swing this week through the liberal heartland of California left Democrats back east exasperated, and even confused, by the Republican governor’s popularity with the Hollywood and Silicon Valley crowds.
Christie’s trip took him from Beverly Hills to La Jolla and Santa Barbara, and ended with a private event at the home of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
“When we he heard that Mark Zuckerberg would be holding his first-ever political fundraiser for Chris Christie, we were just shocked,” said Becky Bond, political director for progressive group CREDO, who helped stage a 50-person protest outside the social media giant’s Palo Alto home.
Christie appeared two days earlier at the Beverly Hills Hotel, where about 30 to 40 Hollywood and entertainment attended the $3,800-a-ticket funder. Among the crowd, according to a report in the New York Post, was Disney Executive Gary Wilson, Richard “Skip” Bronson, and actress Sofía Vergara, who stars in the show, Modern Family, and has filmed a public service announcement for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD).
Chris Christie knows he will get no Conservative financial support because of his treachery, therefore he goes to Democratic donors.
