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.

Chris Christie: The $18 million man

Washington (CNN) - It appears the controversies New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's dealing with back in the Garden State haven't affected his standing as one of the GOP's most potent fundraising rainmakers.

As Christie convenes two days of Republican Governors Association meetings here in the nation's capital Friday and Saturday, an RGA official tells CNN that the group has raised $18 million since Christie took over as RGA chairman in late November. That's a new fundraising record for the first three months of a new RGA chairman's tenure. The previous record holder was then-Mississippi Gov. Haley Barber, who chaired the RGA from June 2009 through the end of 2010.
