ABC News reports that a campaign staffer for the Republican presidential candidate licked the camera lens of a tracker from the Democratic research super PAC American Bridge 21st Century who was trying to record the event.

Trackers are hired by opponents and opposition groups to record everything a candidates says or does.

When asked about incident, Paul's campaign avoided comment. American Bridge's tracking director Becky Parks, however, reacted in a tweet:

The group's communications director, Ben Ray, said he's never seen anything like this before.

"No. No, I have not," Ray told ABC News, noting that it's a common practice for staffers to try to block trackers' cameras with their bodies, but nothing quite like this.
