Rand Paul talks faith in Kentucky campaign swing

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) – U.S. Sen. Rand Paul is talking about health care, coal and his faith in God during a two-day trip to Kentucky this week.

The Republican presidential candidate is scheduled to have seven events across the state on Monday and Tuesday in addition to three book signings. He talked to a crowd of supporters at a Lexington bookstore on Monday morning about his faith in God, calling it “a daily process to become more Christ-like.” He said he supported Republican Gov.-elect Matt Bevin’s plan to dismantle Kentucky’s health insurance exchange and scale back the eligibility requirements for its Medicaid program.

Paul is running for president and re-election to his U.S. Senate seat at the same time. He plans to hold two town hall-style events about coal in Kentucky on Tuesday.
