Paul Denounces Bundy Race Remarks

Senator Rand Paul, the Kentucky Republican and potential 2016 presidential candidate, joined a line of Republican and Democratic leaders on Thursday in denouncing Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher at the center of a standoff with the federal government over land use, for suggesting that blacks might have been better off in slavery. “His remarks on race are offensive, and I wholeheartedly disagree with him,” Mr. Paul said in a statement. The senator’s remarks came after he had offered support for Mr. Bundy’s case as the rancher resisted the federal Bureau of Land Management when it sought to confiscate his cattle because he was not paying fees for their grazing on public land/New York Times.

Question: Are you still standing by your man, Cliven Bundy supporter?
