Tea Party darling U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is casting doubt on Republican Gov. Chris Christie’s favorability in a GOP primary.
The federal lawmaker took to the airwaves Friday blasting New Jersey’s governor for Christie’s statements on the National Rifle Association and the Second Amendment, according to a Huffington Post report.
“I think criticizing the Second Amendment movement and the over-the-top ‘give me my money’ stuff, ‘I want all 60 billion now or I’ll throw a tantrum,’ I don’t think that’s going to play well in the Republican primary,” Paul said on the Laura Ingraham show Friday, a day after Christie’s news conference in Trenton.
“You have some Republicans backing down like Christie backing down and criticizing the NRA, and I think that doesn’t do any good,” he said.

"Christie’s method for coping with scandal has been more complicated. In January, the seemingly-local issue of lane closings on the George Washington Bridge, which created a massive traffic jam in the Hudson River town of Fort Lee, became one of national interest when it was revealed that one of Christie’s closest staffers had ordered them—for what looked like political retribution against a Democratic mayor. The scandal was quickly dubbed 'Bridgegate,' and unfortunately for Christie, it played into his reputation as a bully. Christie's response was to act unlike himself: humble." - Olivia Nuzzi- The Daily Beast
