Rand Paul Thwarts Rubio’s Push For NATO Expansion

Jack Hunter reported that Rand Paul thwarted Marco Rubio’s recent effort to push the administration to try to bring Georgia into NATO (via Brian Doherty). Jim Antle has more details:

"Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, a fellow Tea Party triumph from last year’s election, had bipartisan support for an amendment to bring the former Soviet republic of Georgia into NATO. “It called for the President to lead a diplomatic effort to get approval of Georgia’s Membership Action Plan during the upcoming NATO Summit in Chicago,” a Rubio spokesman explained in an email.

"Paul blocked the amendment. He believed that NATO expansion in this sensitive area could embroil the United States in Georgia’s conflicts with a nuclear-armed Russia, potentially risking war."
