Paul Campaign Calls Christie’s Comments ‘Shameful’, ‘Disgusting’
Chris Chrstie linked the Chattanooga shooting to Rand Paul‘s positions on national security.
The New Jersey governor and Republican presidential candidate said Thursday’sshooting in Tennessee that left four Marines dead was an example of “why I’ve been arguing against the rollbacks in our intelligence capability that Senator Paul has advocated for.”
Asked for comment, Doug Stafford of Paul’s campaign said it was “disgusting” for Christie “to seek to use a tragedy like this.”
“From transportation to national security, Gov. Christie has a long record of political stunts and cheap shots,” Stafford wrote in an e-mail. “It is disgusting for him to seek to use a tragedy like this to launch a shameful and patently false attack.”
