New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who’s expected to make a Republican bid for the White House in 2016, was in the St. Louis area Monday evening to raise money for the Republican National Committee.
The private event, closed to the press, was hosted by Jeff Fox in Clayton, sources say. He’s the son of wealthy businessman Sam Fox, who also lives in Clayton and long has been one of the top Republican donors nationally and in Missouri.
Monday night’s fundraiser is among several that Christie is attending in the bi-state area over the next two days.
