Rand Paul Not Committed to Attending Republican Convention
Kentucky Senator Rand Paul is one of many high-profile Republicans who are either uncommitted or say they won’t attend their party’s national convention this summer.
Paul and presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump had several intense exchanges during presidential debates earlier this year. Paul is one of Kentucky’s convention delegates, but hasn’t committed to attending the Cleveland event.
A spokesman for the Bowling Green Republican told the New York Times the Senator’s schedule was “still being firmed up.”
Two leading GOP politicians from the state hosting the convention, Ohio Governor John Kasich and Senator Rob Portman, haven’t committed to attending the convention.
Senator John McCain of Arizona is one of four living former Republican presidential nominees skipping the event.
