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.
