Paul to endorse Lonegan for U.S. Senate

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Steve Lonegan will be formally endorsed next Friday by U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky), according to the Lonegan campaign.

Paul will announce his support for Lonegan at a 12:30 p.m. rally in Clark on 9/13, according to the Lonegan camp.

A potential future candidate for president, Paul has attempted in his career to stake out the movement conservative wing of the party, and in the process has clashed with Gov. Chris Christie, another 2016 prospect.
