Facebook guru Mark Zuckerberg is Friending Chris Christie by holding a fundraiser for the New Jersey Governor in his Palo Alto home next month, according to Buzzfeed.

Christie has been a rising celebrity in recent months now, from handling Hurricane Sandy’s aftermath to going on SNL to appearing on the Simpsons. The two originally met in 2010, back when Zuckerberg donated $100 million to the public schools in Newark, and after becoming buddies, he will hold an upcoming fundraiser for Christie’s reelection for governor.

“Mark and Priscilla have worked closely with Governor Christie on education reform in the Newark school system,” Sarah Feinberg from Facebook said. “They admire his leadership on education reform and other issues and look forward to continuing their important work together on behalf of Newark’s schoolchildren. Mark and Priscilla are happy to host him at their home to support his reelection.”
