Christie: "Democratic support doesn't diminish my base"

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.
