Republican presidential contender Rand Paul on Friday crashed an event you'd probably never expect to find a Republican at: the South Carolina Democratic forum.

The Kentucky senator, in the state for a number of campaign events, took his libertarian message to those on the other side of the aisle.
"Senator Paul will happily take his message of liberty and opportunity to every corner of this land," spokesman Sergio Gor told TheBlaze. "It was only right that the voters of South Carolina hear from someone who's not a socialist or corrupted."

Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders were in attendance.
At the Democratic forum, Paul conducted a number of interviews.

Speaking to MSNBC host Chris Matthews, Paul called Clinton "a neocon," citing her record as secretary of state for support.
"If Hillary Clinton is president, we will be back at war in the Middle East," he said.
