Chris Christie Has Raised $60 Million for GOP

Scandal? What scandal?

Republicans love Chris Christie. CNN reports:

It appears the George Washington Bridge controversy New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s dealing with this year back in the Garden State hasn’t affected his standing as one of the GOP’s most potent fundraising rainmakers.

The Republican Governors Association announced Thursday that it’s raised $60 million since Christie was elected chairman of the organization last November.

Christie’s chairmanship of the RGA was seen as a possible stepping stone to a potential 2016 bid for the GOP presidential nomination. But six weeks into his tenure as chairman, the bridge controversy went viral. State lawmakers and the U.S. Attorney’s Office are investigating allegations that top Christie appointees orchestrated traffic jams last September by closing access lanes to the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee to politically punish that town’s mayor for not endorsing the governor’s re-election.

But Christie has kept traveling — and that, in turn, has kept his political prospects alive even in the season of scandal.
