Packers fan Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) got a dig in at New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie — a rabid Cowboys fan — following Sunday night’s playoff game between the two teams.

Green Bay bested the Dallas  Cowboys 26 to 21. In celebrating his team’s victory, Ryan tweeted a picture of himself with his kids at Lambeau Field.

“.@GovChristie, do you need a hug now? #GoPackGo #WinninginWisco,” Ryan tweeted at the New Jersey governor.

Christie — a possible contender for the GOP nomination in 2016 — has taken shots in recent days for not only being a Cowboys fan but also awkwardly embracing owner Jerry Jones after the Cowboys win over the Lions.

Christie was Jones’ guest again at Sunday’s game in Wisconsin. Another possible 2016 contender — Republican Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — was there as well. Earlier in the month, Walker got into it with Christie on Twitter over the hug:

Walker, however, appeared to have the last word as of Monday morning.
