Zuckerberg to host Republican fundraiser

The 28-year-old billionaire and his wife, Priscilla Chan, will host Mr Christie at their California home next month and charge the Republican's supporters for the privilege of attending.
The event, which will raise funds for Mr Christie's re-election effort in November, came as a surprise to many political observers who associate Silicon Valley with liberal politics.
Mr Christie, who is considered a leading contender for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, has long presented himself as a pragmatist able to get results in a deeply Democrat state.
"Mark and Priscilla have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system," said a Facebook spokesman. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
