New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said U.S. Senator Rand Paul’s comments about him are “juvenile” and declined the Kentucky Republican’s invitation to come to Washington and settle their differences over a beer.

“I’m not offended by Senator Paul calling me names,” Christie said during his “Ask the Governor” show broadcast by Townsquare Media LLC’s WKXW-FM radio station in Ewing. “I think it’s juvenile, but I’m not offended by it.”

Christie last week referred to Paul, a possible rival in the 2016 Republican presidential primary race, as a subscriber to “dangerous” political ideas that value individual liberties over government power and national security. Earlier today, Paul said on a Fox News show that he and the governor should “patch things up” over a beer.

“I’m running for re-election in New Jersey,” Christie said. “I really don’t have time for that at the moment. I’ve got work to do here.”
