Romney, Christie To Team Up For Fundraiser

JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is expected to appear alongside New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) at a fundraiser Thursday in Boston.

The Washington Post confirmed the appearance with Romney’s and Christie’s aides on Saturday, while Christie kept a low profile at the annual National Governors Association meeting in Washington, D.C.

The event Thursday will raise money for the Republican Governor’s Association and Romney is expected to deliver remarks at an evening dinner, according to the Post.

The appearance signals that Romney stands by an embattled Christie, whose administration faces investigations into its involvement in closing lanes on the George Washington Bridge. Romney told CNN in January that he believed Christie was telling the truth when he said he was unaware of his aides’ involvement in ordering the lane closures.

“Oh, I sure do. Chris is a friend of mine,” Romney said at the time. Chris is a straightforward guy. When he tells you something, you can count on it.”
