Paul wanted Kentucky to caucus, still taking Trump fire

Bias Bash: Justin Duckham says the media was wrong about the Kentucky senator's electability

 

The Kentucky Republican Caucus on Saturday has been largely funded by Sen. Rand Paul who convinced the state party to switch from a primary format to get around a state law prohibiting someone from appearing on the ballot in multiple federal races.

Paul was seeking a second Senate term and running as a 2016 GOP presidential candidate until he suspended his campaign last month.

He tweeted a couple of photos of himself at his caucus site. A Paul spokesman says the senator will not say for whom he has cast a ballot and noted he has yet to endorse a candidate since dropping out after the Iowa GOP Caucus in early February.  

In the meantime, GOP frontrunner Donald Trump sent the following two tweets Saturday morning:

“Why would anyone in Kentucky listen to failed presidential candidate Rand Paul re: caucus. Made a fool of himself (1%.). KY his 2nd choice!”

The other reads: “To the people of Kentucky, Rand Paul didn't want you. Not (sic) he runs back due to his presidential failure. #VoteTrump #MakeAmericaGreatAgain”
