Report: GOP Gives Rand Paul Head Start in Early 2016 Primaries
The Republican National Committee has opened a pathway to the presidential nomination for Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul with a primary schedule that favors the potential libertarian-leaning tea party candidate.
The Daily Beast says that the committee’s format calling for Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada to hold their primaries first gives Paul a “huge advantage” over rivals like former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, laid the groundwork for his son while campaigning over the years as a Libertarian to become president, and “those same ties” give Paul a vital head start in three of the early primary states.
“If the senator were to win or even put together a decent showing there, Republicans say he may have momentum that is impossible to slow,” said the Beast’s David Freelander. “No Republican has won Iowa and New Hampshire and failed to win the nomination. Full story.
It’s certainly not intentional on the part of the GOP, but we’ll take every advantage we can get to restore liberty in the United States!
