BEDFORD, NH – Leading conservative U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) has announced his endorsement of Republican Senate candidate Bryant “Corky” Messner, who is running to unseat Democrat U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen.

“Corky Messner has my full support in this race and I truly look forward to serving with him in the United States Senate,” says Senator Paul.

“One of my favorite things about New Hampshire is the ‘Live Free or Die’ spirit of independence and liberty. Having more senators in Washington who embody those ideals and can amplify that message in Congress is needed now more than ever. Fortunately, with Corky Messner, the Granite State has a candidate who is prepared to do just that.”

“Senator Paul has been a tireless advocate of personal liberty and individual freedoms, and I thank him for his support,” says Messner. “He has been a true role model for those of us who cherish the Constitution and understand the very real challenges facing this nation.”

Senator Paul is recognized as one of the nation’s leading advocates for liberty. Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010, he is an outspoken champion for constitutional liberties and fiscal responsibility. As a fierce advocate against government overreach, Senator Paul has fought tirelessly to return government to its limited, constitutional scope.

“Corky Messner is an outsider who understands the need for more leaders who will buck the status quo and defend the Constitution,” says Paul. “He’s a businessman who knows how important it is to get our debt and deficit under control and our spending in check. He’s a veteran who has served our country honorably and believes, like President Trump and I do, that we must end the endless wars and take care of our veterans, who have sacrificed so much.”
