Sen. Rand Paul talks campaign, visits in Kentucky

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.-News 40 talked to Senator Rand Paul this morning about a variety of topics, as he gets closer to the election in November. 

Senator Paul has spent the month of August traveling across Kentucky, going to eastern Kentucky to meet with flood victims, visiting Mayfield to check on continued tornado relief efforts, and other parts of the Commonwealth to discuss inflation and unemployment. 

The republican incumbent is running against democrat Charles Booker. Sen. Paul released his first campaign TV ad this afternoon, which focuses on where taxpayer dollars go. 

News 40 also asked the senator about republican Kelly Craft joining the governor’s race. 

“We’ve never seen a republican primary beginning before we’ve even had the elections this year. So we’re more than a year out and I think we’ve got five or six candidates, a lot of good candidates, I think it’ll be a very spirited primary, I don’t know if the candidates are looking forward to it, but as a voter I’m looking forward to hearing from all of them,” said Sen. Paul. 

The general election is Tuesday, November 8th.
