LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- It was a simple tweet from one of Louisville's most influential ministers, but it spoke volumes.
Saint Steven's pastor, Kevin Cosby, is speaking out about Rand Paul.
"What I appreciate about what Rand Paul said was at least he was trying to provide some answers and solutions," Cosby said.
At a community meeting in Louisville, Paul said he's for parental choice of education, job creation and the expungement of records for non-violent felons.
"I am in favor of people allowed to get their rights back," Paul said, "the right to vote, the second and fourth amendment back. All your rights to come back."
Reverend Cosby posted on his Twitter page, "No one in this country is creating a better message of uplift for the African American community than Rand Paul.
Dr. Cosby said he applauds the senator and it's not about the political affiliation, but rather what politicians stand for. He says Rand Paul stands for the important issues that need to change that affect the people here in West Louisville.
Senator Paul has said he's considering running for president in 2016.
