Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) is endorsing GOP presidential candidate Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) for president. Paul’s campaign sent out a press release with the announcement and noted that Mulvaney will serve as the campaign’s Eastern States Co-Chairman.
“With this announcement, Congressman Mulvaney will join a growing list of congressional representatives, such as Reps. Raúl Labrador, Cynthia Lummis and Congressman Thomas Massie, in support of Senator Rand Paul for President of the United States in 2016. Sen. Rand Paul is the first Republican presidential candidate of this cycle to receive an endorsement from a member of the South Carolina delegation,” the press release stated.
“I am honored to have the support of Congressman Mulvaney in my run for the presidency. Since taking office in 2010, Congressman Mulvaney and I have grown to be personal friends, as we are both staunch defenders of the Bill of Rights,” Paul stated in the press release. “I admire his conservative leadership in the House of Representatives and together, I know we can defeat the Washington Machine by restoring fiscal sanity, the Bill of Rights, and regulatory restraint.”
“I’m proud to endorse Senator Rand Paul for President. Rand has proven himself as a conservative outsider unafraid to take on the Washington establishment. I look forward to spending some time with him in South Carolina and working to spread his message of small government and fiscal conservatism. Rand is exactly the kind of leader we need in the White House,” stated Mulvaney.
Mulvaney and Paul will campaign together in South Carolina Wednesday.
