LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul hit the campaign trail in WAVE Country on Monday.

He addressed a town hall meeting at the Fern Creek Community Center, where he also talked presidential politics.

Paul began with tongue-in-cheek jokes about Bill and Hillary Clinton -- before laying out his more serious points -- saying he thinks they do not respect the constitution or the office.

"If you're selling your political service -- and selling speeches to entities that have business before your wife, that is corrupt," Paul said. "That is a conflict of interest and really it should not be tolerated."

Paul announced his bid for president in Louisville last year, but dropped out this year.

He'll face Democrat Jim Gray, Lexington's mayor, for his senate seat in November.
