During Governor Walker’s recall campaign, New Jersey’s Chris
Christie was a reliable supporter, making several visits to the state to help
raise funds and rally the troops on Walker’s behalf.
Now it’s apparently time for Walker to return the favor, by
helping Christie raise funds for his own re-election effort. Walker is hosting a high-dollar fund-raising
luncheon for Christie on March 14 at the
Wisconsin Club in Downtown Milwaukee. A host reception will run $3,800 per
person/couple; a photo reception will run $1000 person/couple; while tickets
for the lunch itself are $250 a person.
And while some conservatives have cooled to Christie in the week of his praise of President Obama, that has apparently not cooled the political friendship between the two governors. Adding an additional wrinkle to the ongoing Walker-Christie bromance: Both governors have been mentioned as possible 2016 presidential contenders.
