July 30 (UPI) — Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey got into a Chicago Cub’s fan’s face at Miller Park in Milwaukee Sunday.
A video tweeted by WISN showed the governor holding a tub of nachos as he crouched down in front of a sunglasses-clad Cubs fan. The fan allegedly heckled Christie, telling him he “sucked,” as the Republican governor was walking back to his seat at the Cubs vs. Brewers.
The insult then prompted a response from the New Jersey politician.
“You’re a big shot!” Christie says in the video as he straightens up and walks away.
“I appreciate that!” the fan snipes back.

The New York Post reported that Christie was in Milwaukee this week to visit his son, who works for the baseball team there.
The face-off with a Cubs fan was the second time this month Christie got into a baseball incident.

However, Christie ended up giving the ball away to a child who sat a few rows behind him.
