U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has endorsed Mary Thomas, Republican candidate for Florida’s 2nd Congressional District. The campaign announced the endorsement Thursday. “In this critical open-seat race, Mary is the only candidate who stands for less government, lower taxes, and more liberty,” said Paul, a libertarian Republican who dropped out of the race for president […]
