Protestors at GOP Unity Rally.

Protesters were demonstrating outside
Kentucky's Republican Party headquarters while GOP leaders met
inside to pledge their support for U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul.
Paul ruffled feathers earlier this week when he expressed
misgivings about the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Fresh off a lopsided
victory in the Kentucky's primary election, Paul told MSNBC host
Rachel Maddow that he abhors racial discrimination, but suggested
the federal government shouldn't have the power to force
restaurants to admit minorities against their will.
The Bowling Green eye doctor and son of libertarian president
candidate Ron Paul didn't mention the civil rights flap in brief
remarks to supporters inside GOP headquarters. He refused to answer
questions when he left afterward.
