CHARLOTTE, N.C.–Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn, who speaks at the Democratic convention on Tuesday, calls New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie a “bully” and “braggart.” This comes after Christie last week, in Tampa for the Republican convention, slashed President Barack Obama for being a product of Chicago ward politics.

I asked Quinn to react to Christie at the Monday Illinois delegate meeting.

“We don’t pay much attention to a Jersey Guy like him,” Quinn said. Quinn said Christie’s convention said more about him than Mitt Romney. “He’s a bully, a braggart, and we don’t pay much attention to people like that.”
