RGA Chairman Chris Christie to visit Facebook headquarters

Chris Christie, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association (RGA), will pay a visit to widely-popular social-networking site Facebook's Palo Alto, California-based headquarters on Friday.

Christie has been traveling across the U. S. for the last six months campaigning for Neel Kashkari, the GOP candidate running against Democratic Governor Jerry Brown in California's gubernatorial race this year.

In the morning, he will appear with Kashkari at a retail stop in San Francisco. He is also scheduled to attend a series of RGA fundraisers and some events throughout the day in the city.

He will spent the afternoon taking questions from Facebook followers from the social-networking giant's Silicon Valley headquarters, and participate in a live chat. Christie has forged a good friendship with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

In 2010, Zuckerberg gave a donation of a whopping $100 million for Newark schools. The announcement was made by the Facebook chief on Oprah Winfrey's talk show, where Christie and the then-Newark Mayor Cory Booker were also present. Last year, Christie said in an interview, "They're both wonderful people and have become very good friends to me and to Mary Pat."

In the evening, he will attend another RGA fundraiser in Park City, Utah, and appear at the Experts & Enthusiasts Summit, which will be hosted by Mitt Romney - the Republican Party's former presidential candidate.

Since taking over as chairman of the Republican Governors Association in November last year, Christie has visited more than a dozen states and raised nearly $50 million for his party's gubernatorial candidate.
