Rand Paul helps out at food pantry

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- U.S. Senator Rand Paul has been saying for months that the Republican Party must broaden its base to survive.  Friday, he was again practicing what he's been preaching.

The Republican senator met with constituents in Louisville's heavily Democratic West End.  Paul helped out in the food pantry at the Plymouth Community Center, talked with constituents, and met privately with African American leaders.

Paul told WDRB News, "I think Republicans need to show up in places where we haven't been showing up. And I'm not here asking for anybody's vote, but I want them to know that I am a senator for the whole state, whether people supported me or not, whether they are going to vote for me or not. I want people to know that I do care about all the communities of Louisville and all of Kentucky."

Paul is considered a front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016.  He says he will not decide whether to enter the race until next year.
