              FILE - Kentucky Democratic candidate for Senate Charles Booker addresses the audience gathered during the Fancy Farm Picnic at St. Jerome Catholic Church in Fancy Farm, Ky., Aug. 6, 2022. Republican Sen. Rand Paul, of Ky., was the victim of a 2017 attack when his neighbor slammed into him outside his Kentucky home. Earlier that year, Paul took cover when a gunman opened fire while GOP members of Congress practiced for a charity baseball game. Now, Paul has falsely conflated those events with his opponent, Booker, in his re-election bid. (AP Photo/Timothy D. Easley)
