(CNN) - Former Sen. Scott Brown of Massachusetts confirmed on Twitter early Friday that he's hosting a fundraiser for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican who, like Brown, has been elected in a highly-Democratic area.
"Heading back 2 Boston after doing duty Pentagon. FR for Christie tonight," he wrote.
The event is one of many fundraisers held for Christie's 2013 gubernatorial re-election bid. According to the Boston Globe, which obtained a copy of the invitation, organizers ask for a maximum contribution of $3,800.
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell also hosted a fundraiser for Christie Thursday night just outside of Washington, D.C.
Brown, meanwhile, has largely stayed out of the spotlight since he lost his seat to Democrat Elizabeth Warren in November’s election. A moderate Republican, Brown recently announced he would not seek the Massachusetts Senate seat left open by Secretary of State John Kerry. That decision prompted many to wonder whether he was considering a bid for governor next year.
"Of course I'm thinking about it," Brown said last month, when asked by a Fox 25 reporter in Boston. "I'm thinking about a lot of different things. But right now the best thing I can do for myself and for my piece of mind and I think for the people of Massachusetts is just to hang tight and recharge and be active."
While there hasn't been much talk of Brown running for president, Christie hasn't ruled out a potential White House bid and is considered a leading contender should he decide to go for the GOP nomination. And in the wake of his snub from organizers of the Conservative Political Action Conference, his high-profile fundraising events with top Republicans signal the potential presidential candidate isn't struggling to find friends among the party's top brass.
Christie angered many on the far-right when he expressed gratitude towards President Barack Obama and appeared with the president to survey storm damage after Hurricane Sandy wreaked havoc on the Jersey Shore. Images of Christie–a top surrogate for Mitt Romney–walking alongside Obama lit up TV screens across the country just days before the presidential election.
CPAC organizers, who notably excluded Christie on their guest list, said they were disappointed with Christie's sharp rebuke of congressional Republicans for holding up $60 billion in federal aid for Sandy victims. The package was eventually passed in two separate bills.
