Paul to run ad during tonight’s debate

Rand Paul — Real ConservativeBy The Iowa Statesman


After Republican presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Rand Paul goes on the attack tonight during tonight’s GOP primary debate on CNN, frontrunner Donald Trump at least won’t be able to say the former is lacking in intelligence in any way.

In a campaign season that has been filled with unusual ad buys, Paul’s campaign is spending a lot of money — according to Trump last week, the going rate was $250,000 for a 30-second spot — to run ads throughout the debate on CNN. Rand Paul for President released the new advertisement online Tuesday.

In it, Paul highlights the need for “a real conservative” in the White House. He also touts his credentials as “a true conservative who has always stood up to the Washington Machine,” as well as his “proven track record” as a constitutional conservative: a strong proponent of term limits, balancing the budget, and standing up for individual liberty.
