Gov. Chris Christie has scheduled four fundraisers in California next week, according to campaign strategist Mike DuHaime.
In addition to a Feb. 13th event in Palo Alto at the home of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, Christie also has scheduled fundraisers in Beverly Hills, La Jolla and Santa Barbara during the West Coast swing.

State Sen. Barbara Buono, the presumptive Democratic nominee, has so far raised about $400,000 for her campaign, enough to qualify to receive state matching funds.
