FRANKFORT, KY (11/16/12) – The following is a Letter to the Editor submitted by Senator Rand Paul to SurfKY News.
The Courier Journal has criticized me for supporting several U.S. Senate candidates running for office in states other than Kentucky who failed to win. Yet the Courier neglects to note that I also supported the two new Republican Congressmen from Kentucky: Thomas Massie and Andy Barr. Both Massie and Barr won decisive victories and I am proud to have them serving with me in Congress.
The Courier also failed to mention that the Presidential candidate I supported, Mitt Romney, won over 60 percent of the Kentucky vote. It is clear that the message of limited government, balanced budgets and less money squandered on welfare overseas still resonates in Kentucky, if not in the boardroom of The Courier Journal.
I am proud to stand up every day for Kentucky and when I support candidates who will fight Obamacare, fight the Obama EPA, and fight for a balanced budget amendment, I am standing for Kentucky. Kentucky only has two Senators, and we need help in the Senate to win these battles.
With the new addition of candidates like Andy Barr, Thomas Massie and Ted Cruz, the message of limited and transparent government is getting stronger. I will continue to support these principles and look forward to working alongside these newly-elected, like-minded civil servants.
Senator Rand Paul
