The Rand Paul Campaign continued to hammer Sen. Ted Cruz for his absence on the Audit the Fed vote, this time in the form of a strange web video.
The video, titled “Audit the Ted” involves a dialogue between two cartoon characters about Paul’s commitment to auditing the Federal Reserve in an attempt to distinguish himself from Cruz:
“Did you hear about audit the Fed?” the male character says in a robotic voice.
“Yes, Rand Paul is trying to stop the out of control Fed,” the female character replied in an equally robotic voice.
“Do others support audit the Fed too?” the first character asks.
“The Ted Cruz said so but did not show up to vote,” replied the female character.
The characters in the cartoon went on to say that Cruz missed the vote because he was too busy campaigning. The Paul Campaign followed up the video with an email appeal to voters, touting his record and directly bashing Cruz.
