Christie Received $46K Worth Of Advice From Romney Advisers

ASSOCIATED PRESS

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) said Sunday that he’s not interested in the political advice being offered by former advisers to Mitt Romney, but campaign finance reports suggest otherwise.

Yahoo’s Chris Moody reported Monday that Christie shelled out $46,007.29 to Stevens & Schriefer Group, a firm run by some of Romney’s top consultants. Russell Schriefer, one-half of the firm’s namesake and a former top strategist under Romney, was paid to provide advertising advice to Christie’s re-election campaign.

Ashley O’Connor, another partner at the firm who worked with Romney, was also paid by Christie’s campaign, according to Moody.

Responding to details in the book “Double Down,” Christie said Sunday that “political advice from people who ran the Romney campaign is probably something nobody should really give a darn about.”
