Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky was in Ashland yesterday (10/15) to rally for 7th District GOP candidate Dave Brat and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Ed Gillespie. Paul nationalized both races, first urging the conservative crowd to vote for Ed Gillespie.
The Tea Party favorite told supporters they woke Washington up when they ousted former Majority Leader Eric Cantor in favor of newcomer Dave Brat.
Paul concluded saying in order to grow the GOP must reach out to new groups they’ve previously ignored, including the poor and minorities.
