Christie’s Boston Fundraiser Criticized By Dems
" BOSTON (AP) — His political future clouded by scandal, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie pressed ahead on a national fundraising tour Thursday, but kept a low profile during a brief Boston appearance that attracted GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney and intense criticism from Democrats.

Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who maintains an office in Boston, and Republican gubernatorial hopeful Charlie Baker were among those who joined Christie at a private dinner reception at a downtown hotel. Neither Baker nor Romney appeared publicly with Christie, although both have expressed support for the New Jersey governor facing dual investigations for his administration’s decision to clog traffic along the George Washington Bridge last fall apparently to punish a political adversary.

Democrats aggressively tried to link the New Jersey scandal to Baker’s candidacy.

It’s the same playbook that Democrats used for Christie’s recent trips to Florida, Texas and Illinois, and one they plan to employ for upcoming events in Georgia, Connecticut and Utah as Christie raises money as chairman of the Republican Governors Association.

“It’s an embarrassment to have Gov. Christie in Massachusetts today,” said Rep. Michael Capuano, D-Mass., in a conference call arranged by Democrats before Christie’s arrival.
