Watch: Rand Paul Refuses to Condemn Assault on Woman
Kentucky Senate candidate Rand Paul refuses to condemn a head-stomping attack last night on a female MoveOn activist by one of his supporters outside a debate in Lexington, calling it a "bit of a crowd control problem."
"We want everybody to be civil. We want this issue, the campaign to be about issues. We'll tell you that when we arrived there was enormous passion on both sides. It really was something where you walk into a daze of lights flashing, people yelling and screaming, bumping up, and it was a bit of a crowd control problem, and I don't want anybody though to be involved in things that aren't civil. I think this should always be about the issues. And it is an unusual situation, to have so many people, so passionate on both sides, jockeying back and forth and it wasn't something that I liked or anybody liked about that situation, so I hope in the future it's going to be better."
No arrests have been made in the incident.
