Calling for reinforcements to reduce the debt in Washington, U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has cut an ad for Lewis County Judge-Executive Thomas Massie in the crowded Republican primary for Kentucky’s Fourth Congressional District seat.

Initially, Paul fell short of an endorsement and said he only supported Massie’s candidacy, but this commercial makes it clear.
