Kentucky Republican Senate nominee Rand Paul says that if he’s elected he would not be a shoo-in vote for Republican leader Mitch McConnell, who did not back him in the primary but supports him now, according to Politico
“We will challenge him from day to day, but there will be many areas in which we agree,” Paul said during an appearance Tuesday on CNN’s “American Morning.”
“Most Republicans think we’re spending too much, the deficit’s too high. But sometimes when we’ve gotten in power, we’ve gone along and not really stayed the course,” he added. “I will be one who will say to Republicans in my party, ‘We do need to stay the course and go ahead and balance our budget.’”
