Kentucky Republican senatorial candidate Rand Paul is seeking fund-raising help from lawmakers who voted for the 2008 financial bailout, flip-flopping on a campaign promise to shun those lawmakers.

The libertarian-leaning Paul, who condemns taxpayer-backed bailouts of the private sector, will benefit from a Thursday night fundraiser at the National Republican Senatorial Committee in Washington, D.C.

Nine of 12 GOP senators listed on the event's invitation voted for the $700 billion bank bailout. Individual tickets to the fundraiser went for $1,000, with sponsorships costing up to $5,000 per group.

During the primary, Paul pledged not to accept contributions from any senator who voted for the financial bailout, even including the commitment on his campaign website — a vow since removed from the site.
