Rand Paul heads to Capitol Hill

By Paige Quiggins - email

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell welcomed 13 new Republican senators to Capitol Hill on Nov. 15. Rand Paul was one of the newcomers to Washington, D.C.

Paul has begun to learn the ins and outs of the Capitol. In a move on the Senate floor, McConnell reversed course and endorsed a moratorium pork barrel projects known as "earmarks."

Paul and McConnell had been at odds over this topic, but now seem to be in agreement on the issue.
