Sen. Jim DeMint may be one of Rand Paul's biggest supporters in his bid to be Senator from Kentucky but Paul has pledged his vote for Republican leader to another man.

Appearing along side his challenger, Jack Conway, on Fox News Sunday, Paul said that he would support Sen. Mitch McConnell for Republican Senate leader after the fall midterm elections.

"Would you support Kentucky's Mitch McConnell for Republican leader if you become a senator?" asked Fox News' Chris Wallace.

"Yes, I think Mitch McConnell will be the leader again and hopefully the Majority Leader this time around," answered Paul.

"And you will support him? You will vote for him?" pressed Wallace.

"Yes. Yes," said Pail.

"Not Jim DeMint, not anyone else?" wondered Wallace.

"Right. What we're having is we will have a caucus meeting and decide but I will vote for whoever comes out of the caucus as the Republican leader," replied Paul.
