A battle of words has erupted between New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Governor Jerry Brown.

Christie called Brown an old "retread," saying he couldn't believe California voters chose him over Meg Whitman.

Brown said 'it's on.' "But I have to tell you, I ran 3 miles in 29 minutes two nights ago and I hereby challenge Governor Christie to a 3- mile race, a pushup contest, and a chin up contest," he said.

Christi has not responded to Brown's challenge.
