Upcoming: The Judas Beer Summit?

The Judas Rand pollsters must be telling him that calling Judas Christie the King of Bacon is not going over well with likely Republican voters. Rand has switched gears and is calling for a "beer summit" between the two.

Rand now tells us that it turns out Christie is not the king of bacon, but is actually pretty libertarian. From Politico:
“We’re going to have to patch things up. If we can sit down. I’m inviting him for a beer. Anytime he would like to come down and sit down at the pub right around the corner from the Senate and have a beer,” Paul told [Neil Cavuto of FOX News]. “We’ll formalize it, we’ll put it in writing but I think we could sit down and have a beer and mend things.”

“At times people have said Chris Christie has some libertarian leanings so it’s actually a little ironic that we see him criticizing libertarians in the party for libertarian influences, because some libertarians actually had high hopes that he had some libertarian leanings.”

This is some big tent Rand is building: Mitch McConnell and Chris Christie are included, but no to  the true libertarian leaning Matt Bevin. Can't wait to see who Rand includes next under the big tent.


The Hill reports:
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) turned down an offer by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to get a beer and end a nearly week-long feud.
"I’m running for re-election in New Jersey. I don’t really have time for that at the moment," Christie said to Eric Scott on 101.5 FM's "Ask The Governor" program on Wednesday, according to the Asbury Park Press. "You know, if I find myself down in Washington, I'll certainly look him up. I don't suspect I'll be there anytime soon. I've got work to do here." 

So much for Rand's big tent:
