The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) is using Facebook to show its "dislike" of the move by the social network's founder, posting a thumbs-down graphic with the news and inviting supporters to sign a petition to call on Zuckerberg to cancel his fundraiser for Christie.

The Republican Governors Association (RGA) is promoting the news as well, in a post that urges supporters to use the thumbs-up button. "This definitely deserves a lot of LIKES!" the RGA wrote.

The RGA also sent a barbed tweet at its Democratic counterpart making a pointed comment about the number of states currently represented by Democratic governors.

In a statement, a spokeswoman for Facebook said Mark and Priscilla Zuckerberg "admire [Christie's] leadership on education reform and other issues."
