Chris Christie: The $33 million man

Washington (CNN) – It appears the George Washington Bridge controversy that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's been dealing with back home in the Garden State hasn't affected his standing nationally as one of the Republican Party's most potent fundraising rainmakers.

The Republican Governors Association announced Thursday that the group has raised a record $23.5 million the first three months of this year, and $33 million since Christie took over as RGA chairman in late November. That's a new fundraising record for the first four and a half months of a new RGA chairman's tenure.

Christie says he misspoke when using the term 'occupied territories'

(CNN) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said Saturday he "misspoke" when he used the controversial term "occupied territories" in an address to a Republican Jewish Coalition event.

In a private meeting later with Republican mega-donor Sheldon Adelson, who is a major backer of the group, Christie said "I misspoke," according to Andy Abboud, senior vice president of Adelson's Las Vegas Sands Corp. Abboud, who also attended the session, told CNN that Christie said "I don't believe that," referring to the view that the West Bank is occupied by Israel.
