TRENTON - (AP) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he didn't try to start a feud with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul.

Speaking during his monthly call-in show on TownSquare Media on Wednesday, Christie said he was simply answering a question last week about his views on a National Security Agency program before Paul criticized him.

Christie says "it was never about Sen. Paul until Sen. Paul tried to make it about me."

Christie was asked if he would have a beer and talk things through with the senator, who like Christie is seen as a possible presidential candidate in 2016.

Christie says he's too busy for that to be a priority. But that if he's in Washington, "I'll look him up."

The two Republicans have exchanged verbal barbs since last week.
