Sen. Rand Paul, who’s made no secret of exploring a 2016 presidential run, recently met privately with News Corp. chairman Rupert Murdoch and Fox News head Roger Ailes, POLITICO has learned.
The meetings — Paul sat down with each man separately — came as Kentucky Republican and tea party favorite has been working to smooth concerns among Republicans and influencers about whether he shares his famous libertarian father’s views on issues like national security.
Murdoch and Ailes have both historically had a good relationship with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. Ailes reportedly was part of a group of elites urging Christie to run for president against lukewarm front-runner Mitt Romney in 2011.
But Murdoch made clear how displeased he was last year when Christie embraced President Barack Obama immediately after Hurricane Sandy ravaged New Jersey.
** While I can obviously see why Rand had a "Sit Down" with the 'Dons,' still like Dr. Ronald Ernest Paul's answer to Ailes & Murderdoch, much much much better: Roger Who? Murdoch Whom?? Never heard of 'em, nor care!
