Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is officially filing his paperwork for re-election, and Kentucky's two other statewide-elected Republicans are lending their names to the effort.
McConnell's campaign says it's releasing a new video that includes comments by Paul and Comer.
In the video, Paul praises McConnell's efforts to oppose the federal health-care overhaul and to push in support of a balanced budget amendment.
McConnell — the state's longest-serving senator — is seeking a sixth Senate term. He is facing a challenge in the GOP primary this spring from Louisville businessman Matt Bevin.
The Democratic front-runner in the race is Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is Kentucky's secretary of state.
