Hours after formally announcing a 2016 presidential bid in Kentucky, Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul arrived in New Hampshire to greet supporters.

Paul briefly stopped by a karaoke event with his supporters Tuesday evening at Murphy's Taproom, a spot his father Ron Paul frequented during his own presidential bid. Paul himself did not sing, but a supporter sang "God Bless America" upon Paul's arrival and changed some of the lyrics to be about Paul.

Paul shook hands, took photos and made small talk with the crowd but did not make remarks or address reporters. State Sens. Andy Sanborn and Kevin Avard both attended the event as Paul supporters. State Republican party chairwoman Jennifer Horn was also present.

Paul will address a larger crowd of New Hampshire supporters Wednesday in Milford.
