Hewlett-Packard chief Meg Whitman is throwing her political clout behind New Jersey Governor Chris Christie - a fellow Republican many in the party would like to aim higher than the statehouse in Trenton, according to a report in Politico.com.

meg whitman christieAccording to an invitation politico got its hands on, Whitman next Wednesday will be hosting a fundraiser dinner at her California home. With Christie preparing for a run for re-election in 2013, the fundraiser with its hefty pricetag will be a welcome infusion to his warchest.

Politico points out only 15 couples are invited at a cost of $15 thousand per couple. For an additional $10 thousand any of the couples could be listed as a host of the event.

Christie has to this point said an emphatic "No" to any notion that he would throw his hat into the GOP presidential ring for 2012 but a considerable number among the Republican Party's upper echelon are hoping he will alter his course and aim for the White House.

Whitman grabbed the spotlight last year in her run for California governor and political insiders believe the upcoming fundraiser will shine some of that light on Christie whether he wants it or not.
