Paul, during an interview on CNN, pushed back on criticism by Christie that he was bringing an excessive amount of funding to his homestate by saying that the New Jersey is the "king of bacon talking about bacon." DuHaime responded over Twitter.

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.
