Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, known as an anti-debt crusader, piled up more than $300,000 in unpaid bills from his failed presidential campaign.
The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Rand Paul for President had $301,108 in debts and $2,558 in cash on hand as of June 30 in its most recent Federal Election Commission filing.
The campaign owes dozens of businesses and individuals for rent, insurance, telemarketing, phone and internet access, legal fees, consulting, facility and equipment rental and expense reimbursements promised to campaign workers.
Peter Kutrumanes says his company is owned $3,962 for equipment leased to Paul's campaign. He says his company won't do business with Paul again.
Paul campaign spokeswoman Kelsey Cooper says everyone will be paid in full.
Paul is running for another Senate term in Kentucky. He's running against Democratic nominee and Lexington Mayor Jim Gray.
