‘America’s Best Senator’ — Drudge Praises Rand Paul After ‘Intriguing Lunch’

Conservative news giant Matt Drudge had high praise for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul after meeting him for an “intriguing lunch” this week.

“Intriguing lunch in hill office of America’s best senator, Rand Paul,” Drudge wrote on Twitter. “He’s bold, brave and has somehow kept his heart in such a corrupt city.” (RELATED: ‘Should Be Sued For Fraud’ — Matt Drudge Unloads On Republicans)

“Matt Drudge has a phenomenal take on the news and is a leader who others in the business can only hope to emulate,” Sergio Gor, a spokesman for Paul, told Business Insider. “We enjoyed visiting with him, and we share a strong mutual admiration!”

Drudge is known for living a rather secretive lifestyle and rarely gives interviews or attends public events.

His website, the influential Drudge Report, was one of the early promoters of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.
