Rush Limbaugh and other establishment Republicans better get started now and declare this guy a nut, dangerous, and un-electable:
“Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky resoundingly won the straw poll at this year’s Conservative Political Action Conference, cementing his status as among the favorites to capture the next Republican presidential nomination.
“Paul captured 31% of the vote in the survey of CPAC attendees as to whom they would pick for president. It is the second straight such win for the Kentucky senator, who is the son of libertarian icon and former Rep. Ron Paul.
“The next closest contender was Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas with 11%.”
Did I type “Rush Limbaugh”? Perhaps I’m stuck in 2012. Based on this story, it looks like he might finally be seeing the errors of the neo-con ways . . . and re-thinking libertarianism.
BTW: According to Wikipedia, Romney won the 2012 CPAC straw poll.Bookmark it: del.icio.us | Reddit | Slashdot | Digg | Facebook | Technorati | Google | StumbleUpon | Window Live | Tailrank | Furl | Netscape | Yahoo | BlinkList
