"I think we’re going to pick up enough [seats] to take over the Senate, and I think it is a repudiation basically of the president's policies, but also Hillary Clinton," Paul said on Fox News Tuesday night.

They’re trying to make out as if they’re somehow better for Democrats, but in Kentucky they were soundly rejected."

As President Obama stayed away from the Senate campaign trail, both Hillary and former President Bill Clinton campaigned hard, particularly in Kentucky and Arkansas. But both Democratic Senate candidates are projected to lose in those states. Paul also pointed to Iowa, a key presidential state.

"They campaigned in Kentucky very heavily, and in Arkansas, and in Iowa, so I think the facts are the facts," he said on Fox News Tuesday night. "Did the Clintons help their ticket? So far, I don’t think they have."

Paul also criticized Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes for linking herself to Clinton.

"It turns out Hillary Clinton doesn’t have too many coattails in Kentucky," he said.
