GOP insiders described a New Brunswick Hilton crammed with between 700-800 supporters of Gov. Chris Christie's at last night's kickoff fundraiser for the governor's 2013 gubernatorial bid.
According to a Christie source, the governor raised about $500,000 for his re-election bid, putting his war-chest well over $2.6 million.
"It was a mob scene," a Republican source told PolitickerNJ.com.
There were at least four rooms packed with the governor's supporters.
The general admission crowd paid $300 per head to get in the door and into the big room.
There was a $1,000 room, and a $3,800 room. Those who were responsible for giving $50,000 or more had a special chamber with the governor, a source said.
