Paul mentioned the attack publicly at an event in Leitchfield, Kentucky, on Monday. 

"Capitol Police have issued an arrest warrant for a man who threatened to kill me and chop up my family with an axe," Paul said. "It's just horrendous that we have to deal with things like this."

Capitol Police declined to comment because the investigation is ongoing.

This marks one of several threats and attacks Paul has had in the last year. More than a year ago, Paul was on the baseball diamond when James Hodgkinson opened fire and shot several congressional staffers as well as Rep. Steve Scalise, a Louisianna Republican. 


The junior senator from Kentucky is also involved in criminal and civil litigation against his neighbor, Rene Boucher. Last November, Boucher, a registered Democrat, broke five of Paul's ribs in a surprise attack.
