Sen. Rand Paul faced off with Gov. Chris Christie over the Fourth Amendment Thursday during the first Republican presidential debate.
The debate came after moderator Megyn Kelly asked the New Jersey governor about criticism he has leveled against Paul over the Kentucky senator’s opposition to the the NSA’s bulk collection of phone records.
“Do you really believe you can assign blame to Senator Paul just for opposing the people’s bulk collection of phone records in the event of a terrorist attack?” Kelly asked.
“Yes, I do,” Christie replied, noting his national security experience and recalling how he was in the area of the 9/11 terror attacks.
Paul quickly responded.
