Under Christie's chairmanship, RGA shatters fundraising record

By: Mark Preston

Washington (CNN) – The Republican Governors Association has raised $50 million since Chris Christie took over as head of the political organization, shattering the previous six-month fundraising record by $25 million, an RGA official tells CNN.

Christie, the New Jersey governor who is eyeing a 2016 White House run, took over the RGA following the 2013 election and has been crisscrossing the country raising money and campaigning for GOP candidates. The RGA official tells CNN that the organization has "nearly $70 million cash on hand … nearly double the cash on hand figure the RGA had at this point in 2010."

Republicans must defend 22 governorships, 8 more than Democrats in November. The GOP currently has a 29-21 advantage over Democrats in terms of governorships held.

    '@RI_Roger – Has anyone ever witness an administration self implode so many times in such a short time span on numerous issues? ....and we thought Joe Biden was the "gift that kept on giving" .What will tomorrow bring?..!'

    Given the fact that your opinion was posted on the ticker about a (R), who happens to be a certified doctor, making a diagnosis by image that he will never ever dare to make professionally, or he'll get sued and kicked out of practice for it, I'll say that you live in a very weird bubble... Here's me hoping that someday someboy helps you get back to the real world.
