Paul on Christie: GOP Can Include Those Who ‘Believe in Bigger Government’

Senator Rand Paul took a swipe at Governor Chris Christie in an interview today, continuing the back-and-forth that Christie started last month by criticizing libertarians.

Asked if he agreed with Ron Paul’s statement that Christie “offers nothing,” Paul told Fox News Sunday, “There’s room for people who believe in bigger government in our party.”

He also commented that “the party in the Northeast is shrinking almost down to nothing,” and argued that libertarianism could bring new people into the GOP.
