On Fox News Saturday morning, former Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, explained to host Eric Bolling that she would choose Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky. over Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J.

“I am on Team Rand,” Palin said. “Rand Paul understands, he gets the whole notion of ‘don’t tread on me’ government, whereas Chris Christie is for big government, you know, and trying to go along and get along in so many respects.”

Palin said that Christie was mistakenly thought of as a governor that “goes rogue” but suggested that the New Jersey governor had created “a shtick” by setting up controversial moments and using a “YouTube videographer.”

“No. Chris Christie is for more government and his record proves that,” Palin repeated. “Whereas Rand Paul – with that healthy libertarian streak that we need more of in our politicians – team Rand Paul!”
