Rand Paul was in the Halloween spirit as he campaigned in Iowa Friday night.
The Kentucky senator and libertarian firebrand wrote on Twitter that he stopped at Zombie Burger in Des Moines, but thought his costume was "scarier" than anything he saw at the restaurant.
So what was it? The $18 trillion national debt.

Paul was set to judge a costume in the area later that evening, according to an NBC News reporter who also took note of the senator's "scary" costume.
