WASHINGTON, D.C. – Sen.Rand Paul endorsed conservative physician Kelli Ward for the Arizona Senate seat being vacated by whiny Sen. Jeff Flake. Paul made the endorsement on Fox News, and in other interviews indicated he will join the fight against the Establishment GOP in an effort to promote liberty and adherence to the constitution.
From The Liberty Conservative:
Rand Paul is planning to join the uprising against the establishment by endorsing candidates in the upcoming 2018 Senate primaries, according to a Sunday interview with MSNBC‘s Kasie Hunt.
Paul described a “civil war with the GOP”, between establishment elements and those aligned with the Republican grassroots.
“I’ll be part of this – I’m going to be involved with primaries around the country,” Paul said, suggesting he will play a role in the 2018 revolt against the Senate establishment.
Asked if he would endorse challengers to incumbent Senators, he made clear that he is “not going to be opposing colleagues in the Senate”, but insisted that he “will get involved” in “open races” and will be “asking people to be a part of groups that will help in these races.”
“I’m going to be on the side of limited government, constitutional government, that we should declare war before we go to war, that we should balance our budget and that we have to have spending savings. The biggest problem with Republicans in Washington … is that there is a large amount of hypocrisy.”
Paul went on to elaborate exactly what sort of candidates he was looking for.
“I want people who truly do care and truly do believe the federal government should only do what it is allowed to do explicitly by the Constitution.”
