Dems highlight 2016 GOP feuding

Democrats are highlighting infighting among Republican presidential hopefuls with a new holiday-themed Web video.

The video, shared first with The Hill by the Democratic National Committee, features GOP Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Marco Rubio (Fla.), Rep. Paul Ryan (Wis.), Govs. Scott Walker (Wis.) and Chris Christie (N.J.) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush trading barbs with each other during interviews and public appearances.

"It's the holiday season. A time when families come together," the clip opens, and then cuts to a shot of Christie lambasting Paul at a press conference.

"Maybe Senator Paul could, you know, deal with that when he's trying to deal with the reduction of spending on the federal side. But I doubt he would, because most Washington politicians only care about bringing home the bacon," Christie says in the clip.

Both Christie and Paul are seen as possible contenders for the 2016 presidential election, and they got into a public feud earlier this year when Christie suggested libertarians like Paul are "very dangerous" to national security.

While their back-and-forth features prominently in the video, they aren't the only 2016 hopefuls to trade barbs this year.
