New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is celebrating his 50th birthday on Thursday.
By all accounts, the governor is having a low-key day. He planned to lunch with colleagues then share cake with staff.
Christie didn't mention his milestone at a Statehouse news conference on Wednesday or tweet about it on Thursday.
That didn't stop the Republican State Committee from inviting donors to contribute to the party on behalf of the governor's 50th.
Christie spent the eve of his birthday watching the Giants lose to the Dallas Cowboys at MetLife Stadium with his brother, Todd, who is two years younger.
Earlier this week, Christie performed a duet with Jimmy Fallon of the Bruce Springsteen classic, "Thunder Road."
He delivered the keynote speech at the Republican National Convention last week.
