Senator Rand Paul not only refused to back down from the “bipartisan” attack of Senators Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Lindsey Graham (R[?]-SC) but doubled down on the foreign aid issue:
But Paul — a libertarian-minded freshman who often finds himself in the minority of the minority in Senate votes — doesn’t seem too concerned.
“They are on the losing side of this argument,” Paul said. “For them to come out and support somebody from the opposite party who votes for things that basically none of us on our side is interested in.
Paul also hints at a big ad buy:
Paul is also going after Democratic Sens. Bill Nelson in Florida and Sherrod Brown in Ohio — and he may enter a few more states where a six-figure ad buy can have an impact. Another potential target is Sen. Claire McCaskill in Missouri. Paul said his PAC had a strong fundraising quarter, pulling in about $1 million.
I’d agree. No more money against Sen. Manchin. He’s a safe win. But these states might be pivotal. Go Rand go!
