ROCK HILL, S.C. - Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul is pushing the re-election of U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney of Indian Land.

The Herald of Rock Hill reported that Paul also said Monday he was visiting South Carolina to get his points across in a state that will hold an early presidential primary in 2016. Paul says he has not decided if he will seek the Republican presidential nomination.

Paul said for the Republican Party to succeed, it needs to reach more urban voters, especially African-Americans. He is proposing what he called "economic freedom zones" in high-poverty areas. In those zones, most federal taxes that a business paid would stay in the area, creating more investments and hopefully more jobs.
