Trump teams up with Christie for GOP fundraiser

(CNN) - Donald Trump is teaming up with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie for a Republican fundraiser later this month, a Republican source with knowledge of the event confirmed to CNN.

The real estate mogul will host a reception for the National Republican Senatorial Committee at Trump Towers on October 25. NRSC chairman Sen. John Cornyn will also join Christie and the Apprentice star.

Rumors of the real estate mogul's own political ambitions have been circulating after a New Hampshire telephone poll included Trump's name on its list of potential 2012 Republican contenders. Trump told CNN that he was not behind the mysterious poll, but has since said publicly that he is seriously considering a run for president.
