Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) appeared on CNN with anchor Brooke Baldwin on Tuesday where he candidly opened up about his interest in a presidential bid in the future. Paul said that the Republican party is in danger of becoming “a dinosaur” which is unable to compete in national elections. Paul’s prescription for needed changes that the GOP should adopt includes a more libertarian approach to foreign policy, the war on drugs and immigration reform.
Baldwin asked Paul about his potential presidential plans and whether he has taken any action to try to line up supporters who would back him in the primaries. Paul did not go into the details of his actions, but he said that he would not deny that he was interested in the presidency.
“I want to be part of the national debate,” Paul said. “I think my party – the Republican party – is shrinking. We’re in danger of becoming a dinosaur.”
