Rand Paul coming to Cedar Rapids
According to www.radioiowa.com, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul says he’ll decide in “about a year” whether to run for president in 2016. He made the comment on Iowa Public Radio.
Paul is scheduled to be the keynote speaker at an Iowa Republican Party fundraiser in Cedar Rapids Friday evening.
According to www.radioiowa.com, Paul suggests Republicans can “learn a lesson” from Democrats and make room in the GOP for “disagreement” on social issues.
Paul suggests the G-O-P needs to be a “more diverse party” that reaches out to groups like Hispanics and African-Americans who’ve traditionally aligned with Democrats.
Senator Paul was working as an eye doctor in Bowling Green, Kentucky, when he was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010. His father, former Texas Congressman Ron Paul, ran for president three times and finished third in the 2012 Iowa Caucuses.
