Recently reelected New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) has canceled his appearance at Thursday’s Committee of Seventy’s annual fundraising breakfast because of illness.
The governor’s office notified the good-government advocacy group of Christie’s cancelation at 6 p.m. Wednesday, the night before the event, saying the governor was “just not feeling well at all,” according to Zack Stalberg, Committee of Seventy president and CEO.
About 600 guests were expected to attend the event, the organization’s only annual fundraiser. Stalberg told The Huffington Post the group is “scrambling” to notify expected attendees that the breakfast is canceled and will be rescheduled when Christie can make it.
