Conservatives urging Rand Paul to run for presidentSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Thu, 03/14/2013 - 18:05
Frustrated that the last two Republican presidential candidates weren't believable conservatives, key right-leaning activists, donors and policy experts in Washington are already coalescing around Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul three years before the 2016 election, a huge head start meant to ward off competitors such as Wisconsin Sen. Scott Walker and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.
"He's the package who is a conservative who means it," said one of those involved.
"Rand is the new and improved Ron Paul. He has no baggage and is our best chance to get a president who will cut the size and scope of the government," said another.
