Rand Paul Announces White House Bid
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY)
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), announced his candidacy to run for the presidency last week in Louisville when he announced to the audience "We have come to take our country back." Paul, an ophthalmologist, never held political office until he ran for the open Senate seat in Kentucky by retiring Senator Jim Bunning (R-KY). He is epitomized as a firebrand independent conservative who's supposedly been at odds with some of his own party such as Senators John McCain and Senator Marco Rubio. In his speech, he hurled criticism at both parties in Washington. Click on the above link to read about Paul's candidacy for president.
