Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is going to bat for Republicans, and he's got the uniform to prove it.
The Kentucky Republican and potential presidential hopeful showed up at an Arlington, Va. breakfast event hosted by the Leadership Institute, a conservative group, Wednesday morning looking a little different. Instead of his typical suit and tie, Paul gave his entire speech wearing a baseball uniform, bearing the team name "Republicans."
What was behind Paul's fashion statement? Turns out he went to the speech directly after his first practice with Republicans playing in this year's congressional baseball game and didn't have time to change, an aide to Paul told ABC News.
Here are some of the photos people snapped of Paul, who Vogue magazine once called out for wearing "dad jeans."
