Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie made a "big mistake" suggesting the GOP had no room for libertarian-leaning Republicans.

"Look, the party in the Northeast is shrinking almost down to nothing, they need to be looking to people with new and different ideas who will attract young, independent, even Democrats to our party," Paul said on "Fox News Sunday."

"Saying there's no room for us was a big mistake on [Christie's] part," Paul said.

The spat between the potential presidential contenders started last month after Christie called Paul's libertarian foreign policy "dangerous," and Paul fired back accusing Christie of being a big-spending Republican.

The quarrel appeared to re-escalated last week during a Republican National Committee meeting when former Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, Rand Paul's father, said that Christie "offers nothing" to the party.

Asked about this father's comments, Rand Paul said "The party's big enough for both of us."

Paul continued, "I would say there's room for people who believe in bigger government in our party, and I think that some of the things that [Christie] seems to have promoted make us believe that he thinks there's a lot more spending that could go on."
