“I'm going to stay out of it. I'm just going to encourage Republican voters to get out, vote in the caucus next Saturday and I think it's going to put Kentucky on the map. This will be the first time that Kentucky actually is going to help in deciding who the presidential nominee is,” Rand said Saturday at a Senate re-election campaign stop at a cafe in Shelbyville, Kentucky.
The caucus is occurring in Kentucky rather than a primary at the request of Rand when he was in the heat of his failed presidential campaign effort. At the time he promised to pay the cost of a caucus. Now that he is out of the presidential campaign, it is not clear if he will follow through on that promise.
All indications are that his campaign funds are very low.
