Chris Christie has cross-country criticism for Jerry Brown

Christie convention

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie gave a pep talk to California's Republican delegation on Monday by taking a few swings at Gov. Jerry Brown.

Christie, who will be the convention's keynote speaker on Tuesday, called the 74-year-old Democratic governor an "old retread." He campaigned for Brown's Republican opponent, Meg Whitman, during the 2010 election.

The full story on Christie's jabs was reported by Seema Mehta.

β€œLet me tell you this – I cannot believe you people elected Jerry Brown over Meg Whitman," Christie said. "Jerry Brown? I mean, he won the New Jersey presidential primary over Jimmy Carter when I was 14 years old.”

A spokesman for Brown, Gil Duran, fired back. "It's no wonder Gov. Christie wants to distract from his massive failure with a windstorm of rhetoric,” he said.

Christie last took pot shots at Brown during his State of the State speech in January.
