Fiorina campaigns for Rand Paul in Kentucky Senate race
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – Carly Fiorina is campaigning for U.S. Sen. Rand Paul’s re-election in Kentucky, reuniting the two one-time presidential candidates.
Fiorina, the former chief executive officer of Hewlett-Packard, appeared at a fundraiser for Paul at the Louisville home of Cathy Bailey, the former ambassador to Latvia under former President George W. Bush and a major Republican donor. Fiorina told the crowd of a few hundred people Friday night that she was not campaigning for Paul out of her loyalty to the Republican Party but because of her admiration for Paul and his policies.
Neither Paul nor Fiorina mentioned presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whom they both sharply criticized during their respective presidential campaigns. Paul is facing Democratic Lexington Mayor Jim Gray in the November general election.
