Chris Christie to raise money with Mitt Romney, Charlie Baker

Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey will visit Massachusetts Thursday to raise money for the Republican Governors Association. Joining Christie, currently embroiled in a lane-closing controversy, will be Mitt Romney, former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee, and Charlie Baker, who is seeking the Republican gubernatorial nomination this year. The fund-raiser is scheduled at the home of Jim Davis, chairman of New Balance. Davis was a prominent supporter of Romney’s 2012 campaign, donating heavily to Restore Our Future, a super PAC that backed Romney. At a National Governors Association conference over the weekend, Christie, who chairs the organization, reportedly kept a low profile and avoided questions about the traffic flap.
