FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell is scheduled to speak at a tea party rally in Frankfort on Tuesday.
McConnell will share the spotlight with tea party darling Rand Paul, also a U.S. senator from Kentucky. The two have other joint appearances scheduled on Tuesday, including one at Kosair Children's Medical Center in Louisville.
The tea party rally is set for 11:30 a.m. EDT on the steps of the state Capitol. The Louisville event begins at 5 p.m. EDT.
Both McConnell and Paul have been staunch critics of federal health care reforms. Both are expected to continue that criticism at the Tuesday events.
