Rand Paul in Tennessee says Republican Party must expand its baseThe short video includes a press interview in which Paul defends his defense record.
by Caleb Whitmer, The Tennessean, Jul. 29, 2013 - U.S. Sen. Rand Paul said the Republican Party must expand its base if it’s going to succeed in future national elections.
Paul, a Kentucky Republican who is considering a run for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination, sowed some neighboring-state good will at a fundraiser in Franklin for state Sen. Jack Johnson on Sunday afternoon. Paul used his speech to pick out examples of government waste, criticize the Obama administration and preach the need for a more inclusive Republican Party.
“I think things like liberty, things like your privacy, things like defending the Fourth Amendment, I think these are important things and they can help us grow the party,” Paul said. (link)
