Sen. Rand Paul is taking his anti-surveillance message on the road—and into the liberal lion's den of Berkeley.
Paul, the Kentucky Republican widely seen as laying the groundwork for a 2016 presidential run, will speak at the famously liberal university next week at an event on privacy, according to a Paul aide.
The appearance comes on the heels of Paul's straw-poll victory at the Conservative Political Action Conference over the weekend for the second straight year. There, he delivered a rousing speech that sharply denounced the nation's surveillance programs. "What you do on your cell phone is none of their damn business," Paul told the crowd to big applause.
