According to a new attack ad from Rand Paul, Donald Trump is a closeted Democrat. Via the Washington Post:
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul’s presidential campaign on Wednesday released an aggressive attack video questioning business mogul Donald Trump’s conservative bona fides. “I probably identify more as a Democrat,” Trump is shown saying in the video. “I’ve been around for a long time and it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.” The words imposed on the screen as Trump speaks: “I…IDENTIFY MORE AS A DEMOCRAT.” (The all-caps are all theirs.) The Paul campaign said the ad would run in New Hampshire and Iowa through the weekend. “In sharp contrast, Senator Rand Paul has been a true conservative who has always stood up to the Washington machine,” a campaign spokesperson said in a statement to the press about the new spot.
The next GOP debate is September 16th and the field will likely have thinned by two or three by then.
