LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – Two candidates in Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race hit the campaign trail Sunday.

Republican Senator Rand Paul hosted a barnburner event in Louisville as a kickoff rally leading up to Election Day.

“I’m a big believer that you gotta get out there. You gotta meet the voters and you gotta ask ‘em – ‘What’s going right in your life? What’s not going right?’ and we have to say how we can make it better so Kentucky can prosper more and we can create more jobs,” Senator Paul said.

When asked about his thoughts on the presidential elections, Paul said he thinks Donald Trump is a better candidate for Kentucky – pointing to Hillary Clinton’s stance on taxes and regulations on family farms and the coal industry.

Earlier Sunday, Senator Paul’s opponent, Democratic Mayor Jim Gray visited the VA Medical Center.

Mayor Gray said most of the veterans he talked to were complimentary about their care they receive at the center.

There have been investigations into VA hospitals across the country and the care they provide to veterans.

“I don’t think we should make partisan politics out of the VA. I think we should recognize that improvements need to be made, insist on zero tolerance for failure but also work together to create results,” he said.

Gray wrapped up his day with a campaign cookout in Frankfort.
