Rand Paul Wants To Join Senators Grassley And McConnell In Game of Russian Roulette

Washington, DC- On Monday, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley(R-IA) challenged Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to a duel for leadership of the Senate, after the Majority leader declined to hold a vote on bipartisan legislation aimed at criminal justice reforms. McConnell responded to Grassley’s challenge by offering one of his own, a game of Russian roulette for control of the Senate.
On Tuesday, Senator Rand Paul(R-KY) threw his hat into the ring, telling reporters, “Mitch McConnell has been a stain on this legislative body for far too long. As the leader of the Senate, he is arguably the most powerful elected official in this country, outside of the President. During his tenure we have seen nothing but logjam, procedural failure, and a serious departure from the bipartisanship and compromise that has been the staple of functional government for the last 20 years. Once again,he has failed the American people, and he has brought shame to the people of the great State of Kentucky.” Read more Rand Paul Wants To Join Senators Grassley And McConnell In Game of Russian Roulette
