Christie: ‘I Don’t Have Time’ To Have Beer with Rand Paul
Chris Christie: I'm Too Busy for Beer with Rand Paul (Politico)
Gov. Chris Christie has dismissed a suggestion from Sen. Rand Paul for a truce after the Kentucky lawmaker invited the New Jersey governor for a beer in Washington, D.C., so that they could “kiss and makeup.”
“I’m running for reelection in New Jersey, I don’t really have time for that at the moment,” Christie said on New Jersey 101.5, continuing to take shots at Paul in the process.
“You know, if I find myself down in Washington, I’ll certainly look him up, but I don’t suspect I’ll be there any time soon,” Christie continued during his monthly “Ask the Governor” radio appearance. “I’ve got work to do here to get reelected … [and] dealing with the other issues that invariably come on the desk of a governor when you are responsible for actually doing things and not just debating.”
