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.

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.

"Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto, a Hudson County Democrat, is balking. He claimed Tuesday that members of his caucus are divided over the measure and that his house is in no real rush – besides, even if enacted this year, the reforms would not take effect until 2017, he said. And with the growing belief that Christie could skip town to run for president, some Democrats are not eager to give him another talking point for his résumé. Christie’s plans to stump for Republican candidates in New Hampshire later Thursday only fuel that suspicion." - columnist Charles Stile- The Bergen Record
