Rand Paul on Christie Feud: 'Big Mistake to Say There's No Room for Libertarians'
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) addressed the ongoing feud between his camp and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R). Paul's father, Congressman Ron Paul, recently stated, “Christie offers nothing.”
John Roberts, in for Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, asked Sen. Paul if he agrees with his dad. Sen. Paul answered that the Republican Party is big enough for a lot of different Republicans. “That’s how we grow our party. Libertarian Republicans, like myself, care about a right to privacy, we care about a moderate and less aggressive foreign policy.”
He noted that the party is shrinking in the Northeast, but by being more inclusive of libertarians, the youth, Independents and even Democrats will be more attracted to the GOP. “Saying there’s no room for us was a big mistake on their part,” Sen. Paul said, calling out Christie’s team.
