But who is this man? We already know his father, but what does Rand Paul stand for?
According to his website he is a fan of limited government and isn’t a career politician: he wanted to come to Washington to “shake things up and make a difference.” His Presidential campaign website is very clear, I am a Christian, who does volunteer work and I help veterans. A great website for traditional Republicans.
Now let’s look at his Senate website, paul.senate.gov. The issues he has on his website are: “Advancing Energy Security,” “Advocating for Sanctity of Life,” “Balancing our Nation’s Budget,” “Expanding Economic Opportunity,” “Promoting Opportunity through Education,” Protecting Gun Rights,” “Protecting Privacy and Civil Liberties,” “Putting Patients First,” “Reforming Washington through Term Limits,” “Reversing Burdensome Regulations,” “Securing our Nation,” and “Supporting our Nation’s Heroes.”
Will Paul ride on the coattails of his father? Is Paul more electable than Cruz? These are things that remain to be seen, but I am looking forward to this month, because I believe that the majority of the candidates will come out and declare their candidacy this month.
