A report says some major Iowa Republican fund-raisers are headed to New Jersey to ask, cajole, and plead with Gov. Christie to run for president:
"Bruce Rastetter, an Iowa energy company executive, and a half-dozen other prominent Iowa GOP donors sought the meeting with Christie, the governor's chief political adviser, Mike DuHaime, told the Associated Press. The get-together is set for the governor's mansion in Princeton on May 31.
"The meeting speaks to what some Republicans nationally say is a lack of enthusiasm about the emerging roster of contenders. It's also unusual because candidates typically court Iowans . . . and not the other way around."
