Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Rand Paul took to the skies to campaign Monday, flying to a total of eight cities around Kentucky.
He told supporters at Louisville’s Bowman Field that lawmakers need more discipline in the budget process.
“I think we need an iron clad balanced budget amendment that says you have to balance a budget. If we had that we would force them to be better legislators. And I’m not talking about just Democrats. I’m talking about Republicans and Democrats need to be better legislators. We force them to be better legislators by having rules that they must obey,” he said.
Paul (pictured speaking with reporters) says when he first decided to run for office he only had about a 10 percent chance of winning and now feels his odds are better than even. Recent polling has given Paul a sizable lead in his race against Jack Conway.
Former President Bill Clinton is campaigning for Conway at the University of Louisville. Conway has also been greeting supporters across the state.
