LITTLE FERRY, N.J. — New Jersey's pugnacious Republican governor doesn't appear to want his war of words with fellow GOP'er Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul to end anytime soon.

Gov. Chris Christie fired back at Paul on Tuesday for Paul's remark that New Jersey has a "Gimme, gimme gimme" attitude about federal aid for Superstorm Sandy.

The spat began when the two differed over warrantless surveillance programs. Paul is against them, while Christie says they are needed for national security.
