Rand Paul visits Idaho Falls

Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul made a campaign stop in Idaho Falls Thursday night.

The Kentucky senator addressed reporters at the Idaho Falls Airport before he headed to Frank Vandersloot’s Riverbend Ranch for a GOP barbecue.

Rand Paul says he’s now the only candidate in the race who’s campaigned across all of the gem state.

Paul said he is really hoping his message can resonate with Idaho’s conservative voters, as well as the more independent minded.

His message also focused a lot on the deficit and tax reform. He’s proposing 14.5 percent flax tax.

He said while he’s behind other republican candidates in the latest polls,he’s beating Hillary Clinton in 5 states and has the best chance of beating her in the general election and is doing very well with independents.

Voter who attended tonight’s rally said they’re very concerned about the deficit, but also other hot topic issues like immigration.

Paul has in the past criticized Donald Trump’s immigration plan and tonight he said he is standing by those criticisms.

Paul also visited Boise and Nampa on Thursday.
