MASON CITY, Iowa – Kentucky Congressman, Rand Paul is making a swing through Mason City on Tuesday, and he’s talking about reviving the Republican party.
The U.S. Senator spoke at the Mason City Municipal Airport on Tuesday morning, during a fundraiser for the Cerro Gordo Republican Party. He spoke about reaching out to younger voters, and meeting people where they are. The Senator also emphasized re-energizing the GOP party, to be bigger and better.
One of his ideas, includes lowering taxes for all, to stimulate the economy. He shared one of his ideas with us. Senator Paul says, “We have a plan for Detroit, for example, that would leave $1.3 billion in that city by lowering their taxes. It shows that Republicans do have a plan, and care about those who are unemployed. And, I think if we can transmit that, it’s not about who cares the most, it’s about which policy would work the most. And really frankly, the Democrats just haven’t done much for unemployment or for poverty.”
The Senator also talked to KIMT about making a run for President in 2016. When we asked, he had this to say, “Maybe. We’re thinking about it. My family and I are talking about it, and we won’t make a final decision probably, until spring of next year.”
Senator Paul continued his tour around Iowa on Tuesday with stops in Hiawatha, Iowa City, and Davenport. On Wednesday he will stop in Urbandale.
