The hangovers from Republican victory parties were still hours away Tuesday night when Sen. Rand Paul began attacking Hillary Clinton, the presumed Democratic frontrunner in the 2016 presidential race.
Like every other presumed hopeful, Paul, a Kentucky Republican, has said he would wait until after the midterms to decide whether he is running for president, but he sounded like he might have made up his mind as soon as the polls closed.
Appearing on Fox News Channel's election coverage from Sen. Mitch McConnell's victory party, Paul slammed McConnell's opponent Alison Lundergan Grimes, whom he said "tried to dissociate herself from Obama and attach herself to Hillary Clinton. But it turns out Hillary Clinton doesn't have many coattails in Kentucky."
Paul brought up Clinton's name so many times that Fox News anchor Brett Baier told Paul he already was sounding very much like he considered her an opponent.
account posted a series of photos of Clinton campaigning with various Senate hopefuls, all of whom lost. The six photos were hashtagged #HillarysLosers.
The photos included Grimes as well as Iowa's Bruce Braley, North Carolina's Kay Hagan, Utah's Mark Udall, Georgia's Michelle Nunn and Arkansas' Mark Pryor.
Photos of Grimes and Nunn were posted on Paul's Twitter
