Michigan Democrats Protest Christie Fundraiser

By  | 

BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has drawn Democratic protests while visiting Michigan to raise campaign money for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Terri Lynn Land and Gov. Rick Snyder.

The Detroit News says about 40 protesters gathered Wednesday outside the Oakland Hills Country Club in Bloomfield Hills.

The paper says one sign said "Don't Mess With Our Bridge," referring to Christie aides who shut down traffic as retaliation against Christie's political foes.

He's said he didn't know about it.

Land is seeking the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate. U.S. Rep. Gary Peters is her likely Democratic opponent.

Michigan Democrats say Land and Snyder shouldn't associate with Christie because of his controversies.

Snyder campaign manager Kyle Robertson says "it sounds like March madness started a little early for some people."
