The libertarian minded senator from Kentucky, Rand Paul, is sending a bold message to libertarian minded voters in Georgia.
“One of the things that I’ve taken upon myself is to try to encourage… there was a little over 100,000 people who voted for Shane Hazel, the Libertarian candidate, and I think those people can find a place and reason to vote for Republicans,” said Paul on Fox News.
Paul says libertarian voters should vote republican in the Georgia runoff election to “protect the country:”
Look, I get fed up with the Republicans not spending money wisely and adding to our debt, but they are better than the Democrats. Even if only sometimes marginally so. But on some things, like packing the court and D.C. statehood, Republicans will help to protect the country from all branches of government being controlled by the Democrats. So, I think there is some argument… some of these 100,000 Libertarians to actually vote Republican and I’m gonna be spending some time trying to encourage them to vote Republican in the runoff.
