If you want to successfully run for president, you need money, a lot of it.

On the Democratic side, donors appear firmly lined up behind Hillary Clinton, should she decide to run.

However, the Republican camp has a bit of cloudier picture.

Gov. Chris Christie continues to deal with the fallout from Bridgegate, while Jeb Bush remains non-committal.

The uncertainty has led many GOP heavy hitters to stay on the sidelines for now.

If Christie should run, though, he is well-positioned from a fundraising standpoint. That's because with his role as head of the Republican Governor's Association, he is logging many hours with the money people who could fund a potential White House run.

Christie is back on the road today, appearing at a Washington D.C. conference, followed by fundraising events in New Hampshire.
