Chris Christie slated to appear with Gov. Rick Scott at Palm Beach fundraiserby George Bennett | January 10th, 2014
Assuming he’s recovered from being “blindsided” and “heartbroken” by the lane-closing machinations of his trusted aides, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is slated to appear with Florida Gov. Rick Scott at a series of Sunshine State fundraisers next week, including a money call in Palm Beach.
Christie-Scott appearances are slated for Jan. 17 in Naples and Jan. 18 in Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach and Orlando. The Palm Beach event, benefitting the Republican Governors Association, is scheduled for the home of Pepe Fanjul Jr.
“You might think it’s a bridge too far for Christie to attend fundraisers while mired in scandal. But we think it’s heartwarming that scandal-plagued governor Christie would take a break from political damage control to raise money for his scandal-plagued colleague, Rick Scott,” said Florida Democratic Party spokesman Joshua Karp.
