Skip to comments.Major Democratic donors flock to Christie
Posted on 06/03/2013 11:30:26 AM PDT by jim_trent
TRENTON Gov. Chris Christie is cashing in donations from top Democratic fundraisers and other traditionally liberal donors across the country, even nabbing the support of a handful of rainmakers aligned with President Obama and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a Star-Ledger review of state and federal records shows.
The checks are flying into the Republican governors war chest from all sorts of unlikely places the hedge fund run by liberal billionaire George Soros, for example, and the politically progressive halls of the University of California, Berkeley.
The nascent support from Democratic donors is an early sign of Christies fundraising prowess in a potential run for the White House in 2016, experts and Democratic donors said, and dovetails with recent polls showing him gaining popularity nationally among Democrats and independents........

Well, they do recognize one liberal from another. If they don’t want liberal Hillary, they will choose liberal fat guy RINO.
George Soros funding Christie? That tells me all I need to know.
Good- Christies opponent only need say “And, is it any wodner why major democratic donors have been cotnributing to Christie’s campaign? And Christie wants to run as a repubklican? After practicallt fench kissing Dear leader after the hurricane?”
Nothing unlikely about it. Christie is just the latest liberal Republican they want to run for President. It will make it easier for Hillary in 2016.
Is Creamy going to give Hilary! a run for her money in the ‘Rat primary for 2016 presidential nominee? Inquiring minds wannna know!
Well, this ought to tell everyone everything they need to know about The Great Fat One.
Commie lib DemocRATS are selecting their presidential opponent again.
Will he appoint himself Senator?
Clearly Kathleen Sebelius began forwarding Lautenberg’s medical records to the White Hut about the time Sandy hit the Jersey coast last fall.
More than enough reason for Conservatives to avoid the fat pig like the plague.
No. Too risky for him. Why risk guaranteed re-election to be an underdog in a Senate race.
Isn’t this the guy ann coulter salivates over?
Another wrong call, ann. Time to retire.
Wasn’t it Soros who said there was essentially no difference between Obama and Romney? I am not surprised that he’s now substituted Christie for Romney.
Nothing surprising here. Maybe now though Bruce Springstein will call Krispy Kreme or even do a benefit for him. That would make lardass very happy!
He appeared on Letterman chomping on a doughnut...like the a** he is.
Anyone that lowers the flag for a BLACK, FEMALE druggie is NUTS!!
If it's all about the children....what kind of example is that??
Someone posted last week that somebody should ask Ann Coulter how it feels to lose her boyfriend to Barack Obama. Seemed apropos.
Rhinoceros is correct....a HUGE one!!
Since he can appoint the replacement for Lautenberg, they figure, like any dim politician (RINO is too good for this fat SOB), he’s for sale. No need for big bucks, just get him a box of Krispy Kremes. He’s probably on the phone with his butt boy Hussein 0bama taking instructions right now.
These Rats won’t vote for him.....they are funding him so he will run, knowing full well, he will NOT GET the conservative vote and therefore, another Romney and McCain debacle.
This is a total payoff for the Obama reelection. Period.
That tells me that he will change parties and appoint a democrat to replace Lautenberg.
Argh! I hope not.
Apparently, Corruptocrats like fat prostitutes.
These Rats wont vote for him.....they are funding him so he will run, knowing full well, he will NOT GET the conservative vote and therefore, another Romney and McCain debacle.
BINGO -— We have a winner! If Crispy Cream wins the Republican nominations there would be a large drop off in conservative voters going to the polls in 2016. And the result of that would be many more Republican losses down ticket. We could lose the House and have reduced numbers in the Senate. 2016 could be the year that the tipping point was reached from which recovery was impossible.
This is a total payoff for the Lautenberg replacement. Period.
Interesting question ... Can he hold both jobs simultaneously?
Ann Coulter finally saw the light with Gov.Krispie Creme....
If Christie appointed himself to the Senate he could switch sides and become a Democrat. Then he could be the Democrat Senator from New Jersey for life.
The huge question right now is who is Christie going to nominate to replace senator Lautenberg? This is where the bullet hits the bone. If he chooses a Democrat, he is done with the Republicans.
If the Republican elite coalesce behind him as they did McCain and then Romney, they deserve every loss they get. If they can live with perpetual loss, it would seem that so can conservatives, since we don’t get a say-so anyway even in the primaries. They seem to be counting on hispandering to make up the difference-how can such supposedly smart people be so very stupid? Or do they really not care if they never have power again, as long as they can wheel and deal for personal gain with the left? How long do they think that will last once the left is sure they no longer need to deal with an irrelevant GOPe to hold power in perpetuity?
Major Democratic donors flock to Christie
Someone needs to tell Chris “ Pass the Biscuits” Christy, that Dunkin is now offering bacon, egg doughnut sandwich, I saw it on the Chicago Tribune
The money is advance payment for naming Cory Booker as Senator to replace Frank Lautenberg.
This is the payoff for taking a dive to Hillary in 2016.
I voted for romney but I did not like it at all. I WILL NEVER VOTE FOR THE FAT COMMUNIST KNOWN AS CRISPY CREME!
Dems want his Senate appointment to replace Lautenfail.
Good... he needs to join the party that represents his beliefs and we all would be much better off if crispy creme would go dim.
Right... this has NOTHING to do with the impending naming of an interim Senator to replace the fossil Frank Lautenberg. Though Lautenberg died today, no one will ever convince me it wasn’t already known he was about to go room temp.
Some were onto Christie Cream a long time ago.
Anyone thinking this guy was conservative was fooling themselves.
Dogs do smell the back ends of other dogs to determine who is a friend and who is not!!! Apparently, DNC donors have found a friend!
He may have an “R” by his name, but nothin changes the fact that he’z a Northeastern liberal.
Heck, even democrats in Texas are more conservative...that’s sayin somethin y’all.
Christie if elected, could end up being worse than nobama and he’d give us the finger for complaining about it.
I hate to say “he’ll never get elected” cause I remember saying “no way we would elect a anyone with a clearly muslim name only a few years after 9-11”.
