@PoliticalTicker What a joke. New Jersey's budget is smaller today than in FY '08. Too bad the federal goverrnment can't say that.— Mike DuHaime (@MikeDuHaime) July 30, 2013
Christie and Paul have been exchanging verbal blows since Thursday when Christie warned of a "dangerous" libertarian streak going through the Republican Party on national security, an allusion to libertarian members of the GOP including Paul. Since then the two Republicans, both of whom have been mentioned as strong presidential candidates in 2016, have directed criticism at each other during various t.v. and radio appearances.
