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:
- It's time: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will face off tonight at 9 p.m. ET in the first of three US presidential debates.
- Inside the final days of the FARC, Colombia's 50-year-old rebel group, which is on the verge of signing a peace treaty with the government.
- Dozens of children were killed after the Syrian government launched a major offensive in Aleppo over the weekend.
