Party in New Hampshire: Romney Hosts Rubio and Christie

GOP presidential candidates Florida Senator Marco Rubio and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie had some fun over the weekend at Mitt Romney's Lake Winnipesaukee home in New Hampshire. 

On Friday night, though, Romney had the Christies as overnight guests. But they weren't the only non-family members in the house. Fellow GOP hopeful Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and his wife, Jeanette, also joined the Romneys for Friday night's slumber party.

"Governor Romney heard that his friends, Governor Christie and Senator Rubio, along with their families, would be in Wolfeboro over the July 4th holiday weekend. He and Mrs. Romney opened their home to their friends and look forward to celebrating America’s birthday," said an aide to Romney, who spoke only on the condition of anonymity.

Both presidential candidates were in New Hampshire campaigning and participating in the famous Wolfeboro Independence Day parade.

Christie, who endorsed Romney during his 2012 campaign, just announced his run for president last week. Rubio was endorsed by Romney for the U.S. Senate back in 2010 during his run against Charlie Crist and announced his candidacy for president in April.
