Facebook founder and multi-billionaire Mark Zuckerberg has announced plans to host a fundraiser for New Jersey governor Chris Christie. The event will take place at Zuckerberg’s Palo Alto, California home.
Money from the event will go to support Christie as he makes a run for his second term as governor.
According to a Facebook spokeswoman Mark and Priscilla “have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system. They admire his leadership on education reform.”
During an Oprah appearance Zuckerberg announced to the world that he had just donated $100 million to the Newark, New Jersey education system.
Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t appear to play favorites between Democrats and Republicans. Zuckerberg is listed to vote as an independent and his company’s political action committee (PAC) has donated money to both Republicans and Democrats.
The Chris Christie fundraising event is set for February 13.
