Big GOP Donors On The Sidelines, Waiting For Christie
Some of the biggest donors and fundraisers in the Republican Party have been sitting on the sidelines while they and others try to get Chris Christie to change his mind about running for President:
Chris Christie has, essentially, frozen the race. The most important Republican moneymen in the country, Paul Singer and David Koch, are waiting on him, as are any number of donors and elected officials. This makes it much harder for Romney to consolidate his advantage on Perry. It also makes it harder for Perry to expand his circle of support.
So, even though he’s not running, Chris Christie is still having an impact on the race.
