Republican candidate Rand Paul spoke at UNH on Monday to a room of just over 100 students and community members. The Kentucky Senator called Jeb Bush a hypocrite; Carly Fiorina he called naïve on foreign policy. And his party in general? It did not get a lot of love.

"I‘ve been trying to grow the Republican Party, by saying we need to be the defender of the entire bill of rights, not just the second amendment, but the fourth amendment that says the government can’t come in your house – and the fifth and sixth amendments, which are about justice," Paul said.

Paul argued he’s the only candidate really taking on the NSA, the national debt, and racism in the criminal justice system. His next visit to New Hampshire is scheduled for the end of next week.
