Christie Fundraising in Maine for GOP

Christie, who serves as chairman of the Republican Governors Association, will attend two fundraisers in Portland on Wednesday. The events are closed to the press.

LePage’s campaign hopes Christie’s presence in Maine will bolster its finances and rally its support base as the three-way race heats up between the Republican governor, Democratic candidate Mike Michaud and independent Eliot Cutler.

LePage currently trails his opponents in fundraising, but his campaign says it’s been hampered by rules prohibiting contributions during the legislative session from lobbyists or businesses or individuals that employ lobbyists. The session ended last week, so those rules are no longer in place.
