FRANKFORT — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, known for his unwieldy curls, has been named the ninth most beautiful person on Capitol Hill by The Hill newspaper.
Paul, 51, told The Hill about his sense of fashion, which he described as “unconventional or uncoordinated.” He said his wife, Kelley, would describe it as “none at all.”
“Typically, I come out in things, (and) I’m made to re-dress on occasion at home,” said the Bowling Green Republican who is considering a run for president in 2016.
The congressional newspaper and website has annually compiled a 50 Most Beautiful list for 10 years. The highly-subjective list covers members and employees of Congress, the White House, executive branch employees and members of the political press.
The Hill accepts nominations from its “loyal fans” to come up with the list. The list puts the “Top Ten” in order, but does not rank numerically the bottom forty.
Paul said he tries to stay fit by doing various outdoor activities — usually doing laps in his Endless Pool (sort of like “swimming on a treadmill,” he says,) golfing, picking up sticks to make a bonfire with his kids or tending to his lawn at home.
“I have to have time to mow my grass on the weekends. You’ll see me mowing if you come in my neighborhood,” he told The Hill.
Paul acknowledged he does not always keep a good diet and said he can’t avoid a post-Capitol pretzel binge.
“The worst thing I probably do is I go home, eat some chips, or eat some snacks,” he said. “I’m not the best after work. If I would just avoid that, I’d probably be better off.”
