Former President Donald Trump endorsed Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul Thursday for Senate in 2022.

Trump released a statement from the Save America PAC in which the former president said he fully endorses Paul and highlighted issues he believes the Kentucky Republican has been strong on throughout his time in the Senate.

“Rand Paul has done a fantastic job for our Country, and for the incredible people of Kentucky. He fights against the Swamp in Washington, the Radical Left Liberals, and especially the destructive RINOS, of which there are far too many, in Congress. Rand will continue to stand up for our great AMERICA FIRST policies because he believes in stopping wasteful spending, defending our Second Amendment rights, and taking care of our Military and our Vets,” Trump said in the statement.

“I am proud to be working with Rand in our battle to Make America Great Again. He has my Complete and Total Endorsement for another term in the U.S. Senate. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has a true champion in Rand Paul,” Trump continued.

Trump has begun to endorse candidates since leaving the White House. Earlier Thursday, Trump endorsed Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson. Trump has also endorsed Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott despite his decision to not object during Congress’ counting of the Electoral College vote on Jan. 6 and to certify then-President-elect Joe Biden’s win against Trump. (RELATED: ‘Run, Ron, Run!’: Trump Endorses Sen.

The Daily Caller contacted Paul’s office about Trump’s statement, to which they did not immediately respond.
