Christie to hold New York City fundraiser

Gov. Chris Christie will head to the Big Apple Thursday for a fundraiser at the Union League Club.

The $3,800-per-head cocktail party is sponsored by financier Ken Langone, hedge fund manager Stanley Druckenmiller and Christie-confidante and former law partner Bill Palatucci.  The event is limited to 80 guests and is expected to raise at least $300,000.

Christie, who just returned from a four-stop California fundraising tour, also has events scheduled in Virginia and Boston in the coming weeks.  To date the governor has raised over $3 million in his re-election effort.
