Today, Congressman Thomas Massie of Kentucky's 4th Congressional District received the endorsement of fellow Kentuckian, Senator Rand Paul.
Statement from Senator Rand Paul:
"Thomas Massie is one of the most principled conservatives in the United States Congress. Over the past year Thomas has always stood with me in defending the principles of our Constitution, fighting to keep our taxes low and giving the people of Kentucky a voice in Washington. Today I am proud to endorse and stand with Thomas as he seeks another term in Congress. Kentucky and our nation needs a strong constitutional conservative and Thomas has proven to be just that. I urge everyone to support Thomas Massie."
With his statement today, the Senator reaffirms his support for the tea party favorite. Paul endorsed Massie in 2012 against a field of establishment-backed Republican opponents. Massie went on to win the election by a decisive 16-point margin.
"I am delighted to receive Senator Paul's endorsement today," said Massie. "He inspired me to seek office, and I will continue to stand with him and the other principled conservatives in Congress to fight for the people of Kentucky and our nation."
