Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky likened the Republican party to Domino’s Pizza this week during a swing through Detroit, declaring that the GOP brand “sucks” as he tries to make it more palatable to minority groups.
“Remember Domino’s Pizza? They admitted, ‘Hey, our pizza crust sucks.’ The Republican Party brand sucks and so people don’t want to be a Republican and for 80 years, African-Americans have had nothing to do with Republicans,” Mr. Paul said at a GOP field office in Sherwood Forest, a neighborhood in Detroit, according to the Hill.
“We’re also fighting 40 years of us doing a crappy job, of Republicans not trying at all for 40 years, so it’s a lot of overcoming,” he said. “You got to show up, you got to have something to say and really we just have to emphasize that we’re trying to do something different.”
