Christie Talks Foreign Policy to Jewish Donors [AUDIO]
As rumors of a 2016 presidential run heat up, Gov. Chris Christie got a second chance on Sunday to impress deep-pocketed Jewish donors.
Christie, appearing at the Second Annual Champions of Jewish Values Award Gala in New York City, called for a more aggressive foreign policy, making references to the current state of American leadership.
Seated at the same table as Christie was heavyweight Republican donor Sheldon Adelson.
In a Las Vegas gathering in March, Christie misspoke about occupied territories in Israel, which drew sharp criticisms. He would meet with Adelson privately to explain the blunder.
Sunday’s address comes at a time when Republican hopefuls are courting Adelson — and his money — for support in 2016.
Adelson, who is worth nearly $40 billion, is considered one of the Republican Party’s most influential donors.
