Rep. Tom Price Is A “Big” Taylor Swift Fan

The conservative Republican didn’t understand her Conor Kennedy phase. “I prayed when she started dating a Kennedy that that would end.”

WASHINGTON — Music superstar Taylor Swift has an unlikely fan in Republican Rep. Tom Price.

At a National Review breakfast Friday, Price enthusiastically noted his taste for country music — and, when pressed, named Swift as his favorite country artist.

“I’m a big Taylor Swift fan,” Price said. He added with a laugh, “Don’t tell anybody.”

Price enjoys Swift’s music more than her dating preferences, however: She recently dated Conor Kennedy, one of the noted Democratic clan.

“I prayed when she started dating a Kennedy that that would end,” said Price, who is a prominent conservative voice in the House Republican caucus.

Update: Price has seen Swift in concert too:

3 or 4 times so far. RT @nielslesniewski: @rebeccagberg @RepTomPrice how many times have you seen @taylorswift13 in concert?— Tom Price
