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.
