Rand Paul Visits New Jersey

Posted: Updated:

Rand Paul made his way to New Jersey to endorse Steve Lonegan for Senate but a lot of people feel like he may be in the Garden State for a different reason.  Paul is said to be Chris Christie’s biggest competition for the Republican bid should the two decide to run for President in 2016. So is he here to check up on the Governor?

In addition, New Jersey’s unemployment rate of 8.6 came into question and the fact that we are at a 52 year poverty high has many residents feeling like the state may be mismanaged. Paul had a lot to say on the matter and he also found time to take some digs at Mayor Booker.  Paul said, “My state is struggling too, Kentucky has unemployment at 8.9% similar to New Jersey.  What I would say is the policies coming out of Washington are not helping the economy of New Jersey or Kentucky.  What we need is, we need to return money to the people who earn it so they can create more job and I don’t think that is a policy Booker is in favor of.  My understanding is that Booker is in favor of government, taxes and regulations and we need the opposite”   

When Paul was asked whether or not he plans to run for President in 2016 his response was, “I haven’t decided yet.”
