Paul stumps for Bevin in Somerset on eve of GOP caucus vote
Presidential candidate Rand Paul is taking a break from the campaign trail to stump for Kentucky Republican nominee for governor Matt Bevin.
Paul spoke at Bevin’s campaign office in Somerset on Friday, one day before he will ask the state Republican Party’s central committee to create a presidential caucus on March 5. That way, Paul can run for president and re-election to his Senate seat at the same time without breaking a state law that bans candidates from appearing on the ballot twice in the same election.
Paul said Democratic nominee Jack Conway is known for suing businesses while Bevin would work to recruit businesses to Kentucky. Conway is the state’s attorney general who has filed many successful lawsuits against companies and individuals for fraud and other abuses.
Bevin called Paul the voice of reason for ideas of a new generation.
