Poll of "insiders": GOP will back Christie on national security, not Paul

Chris Christie’s

“The Republican Party is first and foremost the national security party. Sounding like a Democrat, as Paul does, is a great way to undermine our credibility.”

“Paul is right, but the Defense Industrial Fear Complex will invest and win.”

“The isolationist wing of the GOP died with Pearl Harbor. Rand Paul aligning himself with the discredited thoughts of Pat Buchanan is not the path to success. It’s the path to irrelevance.”

“That’s where the money is.”

“Rand Paul is a slightly less crazy version of his father, which includes his positions on foreign policy.”
