LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Republican Rand Paul has become the first sitting member of the U.S. Senate to contract COVID-19 after the Kentucky lawmaker's office revealed he tested positive for the virus Sunday.

President Donald Trump opened his press briefing on Sunday by sending his regards to Paul and calling him a friend.
