BREAKING: Mitch McConnell Says He Will Back Rand Paul For President

Soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell says he will back fellow Kentuckian Rand Paul for president if he decides to run.

“I’m a big supporter of Rand Paul,” McConnell told the Lexington Herald-Leader. “We’ve developed a very tight relationship, and I’m for him.”

“Whatever he decides to do,” McConnell said. “I don’t think he’s made a final decision on that. But he’ll be able to count on me.”

The National Journal nails it:
Paul's advisers hope McConnell's support will give Paul credibility among the GOP establishment that still views him warily, especially on foreign policy. They also hope McConnell will open doors to the type of financiers in New York, Washington, and elsewhere whom Paul will need to underwrite a national campaign.
