GOP presidential hopeful Rand Paul stopped in Duluth Monday to talk to students at UMD.

A couple hundred people turned out for the event.

Sen. Paul said the stop at the college is one of 350 college visits planned across the country.

“Most of them don’t think the government should be collecting their phone records. Most of them don’t think the government should be putting their friends in jail for marijuana. Most of them don’t think the government should send them back to another wore in Iraq. So, I think we have a lot in common with kids and we hope to do very well,” said Sen. Paul.

One student we talked to said she’s not voting for Paul but felt it was important to hear what he had to say.

“I’m going to vote for Bernie Sanders, but I think that it’s an important thing to — no matter how strong you think your opinion is — to always be well educated because you never know when your mind might change,” said Anna Marie Rutz, a freshman at UMD.

The next Republican debate is Tuesday night at 6 p.m. on the FOX Business Network and streaming on FOXBusiness.com.
