    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 governor’s 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.

    Wouldn't say this is good for Christie especially if he considered running for the republican nomination in 2016.

    I'd vote for him or Jon Huntsman but of course that wouldn't happen.

    He had lap band surgery so he'll likely look a little better by then.

    Too bad Christie has zero chance winning the GOP nomination for president.
    His "sin" was when he cooperated with Obama to actually accomplish something and help his state's storm victims. (As you recall, ALL of the Congressmen who voted AGAINST aid for the people in need after hurricane Sandy were Republicans. Absolutely shameful.)
    Christie was pointedly dis-invited to the Conservative CPAC convention, because he is dead to the Republican base now.
