    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is coming to California for cash.

    Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg will host a fundraiser in Palo Alto for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie.

    Christie will visit Zuckerberg's home for a private fundraiser, the Associated Press reported.

    Zuckerberg is an admirer of Christie, the Republican governor who has become known for outsized public comments and was criticized for supporting Barack Obama after Hurricane Sandy ravaged his state.

    In 2010, Zuckerberg teamed up with the governor to donate $100 million to Newark public schools.

    Christie is reportedly cruising to reelection with big leads in all the polls.
