U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky said Friday morning he feared for his life as he and his wife were confronted by what he called “an angry mob” as they left the Republican National Convention.

“It was horrific,” Paul said in an interview with Fox News. “They’re attempting to push the police over to get to me, so at one point they push a policeman backwards, he stumbles and he’s trying to catch his balance and I catch the back of his flak jacket to stabilize him to make sure he’s OK because he’s our defense.

“If he’s down, the mob’s loose on us.”

Rand Paul tweeted:

Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob

Ted Crux tweeted:

What happened to Rand & Kelley tonight (and numerous others exiting the RNC) was wrong. The police protecting them were heroic, but this needs to stop. This is very close to escalating to serious violence.
