LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Kentucky's junior senator spent time in Louisville on Friday, visiting with the city's less fortunate.

Sen. Rand Paul met with community leaders at Plymouth Community Renewal Center in the Russell Neighborhood. The center provides education and encouragement in the form of hot meals, basic toiletries, parenting classes, teen employment and academic enrichment.

Paul made national headlines earlier in the week by questioning claims by the National Security Agency director that a sweeping government surveillance program helped thwart at least 50 terrorist plots.

Paul said he believes the government can be effective in catching would-be terrorists by obtaining warrants to review records.
