Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is hosting his first political fundraiser for Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
The event will take place February 13 at Zuckerberg's home in Palo Alto, California. A Facebook spokeswoman said Zuckerberg appreciates education reform efforts made in New Jersey.
"Mark and (his wife) Priscilla have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system," Sarah Feinberg said. "They admire his leadership on education reform and other issues and look forward to continuing their important work together on behalf of Newark's school children. Mark and Priscilla are happy to host him at their home to support his re-election."
