Kentucky Senator Rand Paul began his day by breakfasting with state lawmakers. He then paid a quick visit to Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas.

By noon he was with gun right activists at a Litchfield shooting club.

He then hit a Manchester charter school, where a called for a rollback of common core, the repeal of no child left behind, and the elimination of the department of education.

"I don’t think anyone in Washington knows if you are a good or bad teacher. They can barely shave, get out of the car, shave and get to work, or whatever they have to do. They have no idea whether you are a good teacher or a bad teacher in Manchester, New Hampshire."  

This was Rand Paul’s first trip to the state this year. He was a frequent visitor in the run up to the 2014 elections.
