At a charitable fundraiser, Chris Christie explains why he's chums with some Dems in New Jersey (emphasis added).
A reporter asked the governor if he’s worried about ticking off his base.
“By having more supporters?” Christie beamed. “I don’t think so. I have always been willing to accept the support from anyone. Democratic support doesn’t diminish my base, it enhances our ability to work together.”
“If I only hang out with Republicans I am going to eating dinner alone,” he said.
Republicans in New Jersey understand that, he added.
