Rand Paul: GOP Senators Battle With Cruz ‘Might Be Overstated’

Monday on CNN’s “Newsroom,” Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) said his fellow GOP senators’ “sort of battle,” with Republican presidential candidate Sen.Ted Cruz (R-TX) “might be overstated.”

Paul said, “I think that might be overstated. People say that over and over again, this personal sort of battle. With me, I just figure what I want the Republican party to be is a bigger, better, bolder party, more diverse. So I spent a lot of my time over the last two year speaking to African-American audiences saying this is our message, we want you in our party. And I think that’s a useful thing, but it isn’t so useful if I’m just a surrogate for one candidate or another. I’ll support the nominee.”
