RFK Jr. Endorses Rand Paul to Replace Mitch McConnell as Senate GOP Leader

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. publicly supported Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) as a replacement for Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) as Senate minority leader following McConnell’s decision to step down in November.

“Part of public service is about knowing when to usher in a new generation. It’s time to promote leaders in Washington, DC who won’t kowtow to the military contractors or push us deeper into foreign conflicts.” Kennedy noted.

“We need representation who will prioritize American wellness over all else. I believe @RandPaul would be an incredible successor. He’s shown great judgment and has the grit to put hardworking Americans first.” he continued.

McConnell, at 82 years old, revealed his decision to step down as Senate minority leader on Wednesday, following intense questioning from a reporter about his support for former President Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

In a recent development, Paul criticized his Kentucky counterpart for what he called “criminal neglect” due to the support for sending a hundred billion dollars to foreign countries while the situation at America’s border continues to be a pressing issue.
