Very smart strategy. Targeting a Democratic Senator of a red state in a current issue that transcends partisan lines and at the same time advances the cause of liberty and Rand's prestige in the GOP. For those purists that hate Rand, I've said before and I'll say again, the liberty movement needs a player, we already have our messenger (Ron Paul), Rand can be effective for those that are too brainwashed by the media or by public school indoctrination to understand monetary policy and the military industrial complex.
