Rand Paul Describes African-American Charles Booker as his Racial Left Opponent

Rand Paul has consistently ranked as one of America’s most unpopular senators. He is a contrarian who tends to vote against any bill. But he is popular enough in the state of Kentucky where he has spent the last 10 years in office.

Charles Booker recently announced his attentions to run against Paul in 2022. And the Kentucky senator is already feeling the heat. This week, Paul sent out a fundraising email referring to the African American Booker as his “racial left” opponent.

The note read, “Yesterday, I got an Act-Blue backed racial left opponent for my reelection. That means millions likely coming in to attack me and lie about me in my race. While I don’t believe for a minute that the people of Kentucky want a defund the police, green new deal, tax hiking person to represent them; I’ll still need to fight back starting today.”

Booker shared a picture of the fundraising email, writing, “Racial left opponent? Rand Paul can’t see the people of Kentucky. And he clearly can’t see past the color of my skin.”
