Rand Paul Cancels Meet The Press Appearance

rand-paul-5-21.jpgKentucky Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul has canceled his scheduled appearance on NBC’s “Meet The Press” this Sunday.

MTP’s executive producer Betsy Fischer tells The Huffington Post’s Sam Stein:

“We booked him on Wednesday. Everything was set and then his press person emailed this afternoon that he was very sorry but he wants to cancel the interview. We tried appealing to the press person to not much avail,” Fischer said.

Paul, who has been a hot topic in the national news this week after an interview on “The Rachel Maddow Show” went viral, would be only the third person in the program’s history to have canceled at the last minute, according to HuffPost. The others? Louis Farrakhan and Saudi Arabian prince Bandar bin Khaled al-Faisal.
