“In today’s politics, anything is fair game,” Christie said during interview on Fox News’s “Hannity.” “But it wouldn’t be my focus.”

“I don't think we get anywhere as Republicans for doing that,” Christie continued, adding that it’s better to criticize Hillary Clinton’s record as secretary of state, U.S. senator, and as a leader of the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary Clinton has in turn accused the real estate mogul of having a “penchant for sexism.”

Christie also took a swipe at Trump over their differences in campaign strategy. 

“We’re actually interacting with people,” Christie said about his campaign events and town halls in New Hampshire, continuing that he’s “not just standing up and doing speeches.”

The New Jersey governor noted the momentum his campaign is building in the first-in-the-nation primary state, saying that his GOP rivals are “attacking me from all sides here so that means we’re doing very well.”

Christie sits in fifth place in national polls, but has been climbing in surveys of New Hampshire. He has put a heavy emphasis on the first-in-the-nation primary state, where he’s spent the bulk of his time campaigning and has garnered a coveted endorsement from the New Hampshire Union Leader.
