Rand Paul and Jim Gray bring senate campaigns to Kentuckiana

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U.S. Senator Rand Paul is campaigning for re-election, but on Monday, he was asked about presidential politics during a town hall forum with students at St. Xavier High School. 

The Republican gave his take on media bias. 

"They'll try to say they're independent, but in no way are they independent. They are behind Hillary Clinton," Paul said. "They saved all the footage on Donald Trump they've had for probably a year or more, and they just sit on it. They gave him all the attention in the primary until he won, and then they switch to try and destroy him."

Paul also talked about his strategy during the presidential primary debates, saying he went after Trump early knowing Trump had a lot of momentum behind him. He says by the time other candidates like Ted Cruz tried to attack Trump, it was too late. 

Across Kentuckiana, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray spent the night trying to attract female voters.

"Our economic security, our economy, is what I believe this race is all about. It's all about jobs," Gray said. "Now of course its about other things, and I'm going to talk about those other things, but at the end of the day, you know a job is precious."

Gray spoke at the Greater Hardin County Women's forum in Radcliff. He talked about his record as a businessman and his record as mayor of Lexington.
