State Sen. Tom Kean Jr. is reportedly set to hold a fundraiser for the son of a possible 2016 presidential hopeful.
Kean, who Christie had a hand in trying to oust from his leadership position in the state Senate, is hosting a fundraiser at his home for George P. Bush, son of Jeb Bush, on May 7, POLITICO reports.
Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor, is a favorite for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination among establishment-class Republicans, a mantle Christie held before the George Washington Bridge lane closure controversy tarnished his national image, POLITICO notes.
Christie had a role in attempting to oust Kean as Senate minority leader following the recent statewide election.
Kean did not immediately return a request for comment.
Reception tickets start at $500 a person, and host-committee status requires contributing or raising $5,000 for the George P. Bush campaign, POLITICO reports.
