Paul Addesses Several Issues During Chamber Appearance

Admitting that not much has been accomplished this year in Washington, Senator Rand Paul made a stop in Hopkinsville Friday. Speaking to members of the Christian County Chamber of Commerce, Paul spoke bluntly when discussing the gridlock in Washington.

During the luncheon on the Murray State campus in Hopkinsville, Paul added that the gridlock goes three ways, involving Republicans, Democrats, and the President.

With many farmers in attendance, Paul discussed imigration as it effects both farming, and jobs for lower income Americans.

Senator Paul further delved into the disagreement between national parties over secure borders and immigration reform.

Paul fielded a few questions from the audience concerning the future of Fort Campbell due to sequestration cuts and reductions in Army size.

Senator Paul will speak Saturday at the annual Fancy Farm picnic in Graves County.
