Top Republican "Moneymen" Travel to New Jersey to Beg Gov. Christie to Enter 2012 Race

If you come to our site regularly, you know that we are big fans of Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey.

He's turned a fiscally backwards and debt-riddled state and has begun to turn it around, something that was widely considered impossible.  He's also taken the largely corrupt teachers' union of New Jersey head-on.

In the grand scheme of things, Christie seems like an almost-perfect candidate for Republicans.  He has a great track record, has turned around a floundering state, and has an in-your-face attitude, but one that gets things done.  Funny thing is, Republicans have no front-runner at the moment.

Enter top Iowan "moneymen" willing and ready to donate money to a strong candidate.  Though Christie has repeatedly stated that he will not run for President in 2012 "under any circumstances," these men will not take "no" for an answer.

More from the New York Post:
A group of major GOP contributors from Iowa, who are disenchanted with the party's presidential field, have scheduled a May 31 meeting with Christie to woo him into challenging President Obama. 
It is a dramatic change of tactics for the GOP honchos, who are usually on the receiving end of the election-year courting ritual, as candidates seek their support for the country's first nominating contest. 
"There isn't anyone like Chris Christie on the national scene for Republicans," said Iowa energy-company exec Bruce Rastetter, one of a half-dozen GOP donors meeting with the governor. 
"We believe that he, or someone like him, running for president is very important at this critical time in our country," Rastetter said.

    Take care with those who come bearing gifts and promises, their motives may be duplicitous and impure, designed to harm, not help.
