US Senator Rand Paul (pictured) believes the majority of the public supports his effort to cut foreign aid to Libya, he said on Friday during a visit to Northern Kentucky.
Paul’s super PAC, Reinventing a New Direction, or RANDPAC, has aired TV spots against three Democratic senators criticizing their votes for foreign aid. Paul said people who oppose his proposal to end foreign aid to these countries do so at their own risk:
"I think Republicans who oppose me on this really will have to explain it to voters, because I think the voters are with me on this."
Paul introduced an amendment in the Senate last month that would have stopped aid to Libya and Egypt and restricted aid to Pakistan until it released an imprisoned doctor who helped U.S. forces to find Osama bin Laden.
