FERGUSON, Mo. (CNN)—After meeting with NAACP leaders in Ferguson, Missouri, Sen. Rand Paul told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that the Republicans Party’s biggest mistake in recent decades has been not reaching out to African-American voters.

The Kentucky Republican, who said his meeting went “very well,” said he laid out his views on demilitarizing police, reforming the criminal justice system and boosting urban economies.å

“I don’t want to characterize how everybody else feels about what I said, but I think it was a good opening to the conversation,” Paul said in an interview set to air Friday. “I think in the Republican Party, the biggest mistake we’ve made in the last several decades is we haven’t gone into the African American community, into the NAACP and say you know what, we are concerned about what’s going on in your cities and we have plans. They may be different than the Democrats, but we do have plans and we do want to help.”
