Paul’s wife says senator wants to withhold Fauci’s record

Fancy Farms, Q. ( Associated Press) — US Sen. Rand Paul wants to present the record of the nation’s top infectious disease expert, the senator’s wife said Saturday while standing up for him at Kentucky’s major political event.

Paul, a Republican, has repeatedly clashed with Dr. Anthony Fauci over the government’s COVID-19 policies and the origins of the virus. which caused a global pandemic. Paul’s wife, Kelly, gets into controversy while promoting her husband’s candidacy during a political speech at a Fancy Farms picnic in western Kentucky. Paul is seeking a third term and is being challenged by Democrat Charles Booker on November’s ballot.

“Now I promise you this, come November when we win, Rand Paul will submit every last document of Dr. Fauci,” Kelly Paul said.

Rand Paul and senior state senator, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, missed a stump-style speaking event due to Senate duties in Washington,

Paul and other conservative critics have focused their attention on Fauci’s handling of the pandemic. Paul promises to vigorously review the origins of the coronavirus If Republicans retake the Senate and he presides over a committee. The Senate currently has a 50-50 split, but Democrats have the lead with a tie-breaking vote from Vice President Kamala Harris.

Continuing her comments about Fauci, Kelly Paul said: “Now some people ask, why am I, Rand so hard on poor Dr. Fauci? Well that’s easy, because the American people deserve the truth.

“We deserve the truth about the origins of a virus that killed millions,” she said.

US intelligence agencies are divided over the origins of the coronavirus, but they believe China’s leaders were not aware of the virus before the start of the global pandemic, a Biden-ordered review released last summer According to.

Booker, a former state legislator, told the picnic crowd that Paul votes against the interests of Kentuckians, condemning him as a “terrible senator” and an “embarrassment” to the state.

“Rand Paul is voting against infrastructure because he doesn’t care about Kentucky,” Booker said. “He’s not going to invest in our health care because he doesn’t care about Kentucky.”

Meanwhile, Paul has “the best health care your tax dollars can buy,” Booker said.

The incident gave Booker a chance to build a foothold against Paul, with statewide television audiences watching speeches that also featured GOP candidates running for governor in 2023. Fancy Farm political speech is the traditional start of the fall campaign in Kentucky.

Booker mocked Paul’s supporters, saying: “Even if you boo, I’m still fighting for you to get quality health care.”

Booker and Paul’s wife spoke to a huge crowd of Republicans and Democrats. The event is a rite of passage for statewide candidates, who are tested in stump-style speeches in the heat of August, while facing the taunts and outcry of other party partisans.

In her speech, Kelly Paul also focused on rising inflation and pressure on the family budget, at a time when Democrats control the White House and Congress.

“Democratic policies are killing the middle class,” she said. “Record inflation, rising gas prices, empty shelves. The economy is faltering and every American knows it.”

Booker is a progressive who promotes social programs such as Medicare for All and a basic universal income, saying the initiative will help people in both poor urban neighborhoods and struggling rural communities. He also supports a clean-energy agenda and criminal justice change.

Paul was first elected to the Senate in the Tea Party-run wave of 2010. Paul is against socialism and big government programs, he says, encroaching on individual liberty and increasing the country’s debt.

Booker is the first black Kentuckian in state history to become the Democratic nominee for the US Senate.

Kentucky hasn’t elected a Democrat to the US Senate in three decades.
