Rand Paul: Dems Scared I Will Run Left of 'Hawk' Hillary

Rand Paul: Dems Scared I Will Run Left of 'Hawk' Hillary

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said in the 2016 Presidential election he would be able to attract independents and “even some Democrats” voters nervous about entering into a new Middle East war with a “gung-ho” President Hillary Clinton.

Paul said “I think the American public is coming more and more to where I am and that those people, like Hillary Clinton, who—she fought her own war, ‘Hillary’s war,’ you know?” 

“And I think that’s what scares the Democrats the most: Is that in a general election, were I to run, there’s going to be a lot of independents and even some Democrats who say, ‘You know what? We are tired of war. We’re worried that Hillary Clinton will get us involved in another Middle Eastern war because she’s so gung-ho,” he added.

“If you want to see a transformational election in our country, let the Democrats put forward a war hawk like Hillary Clinton, and you’ll see a transformation like you’ve never seen,” the Kentucky junior senator concluded.
