Skip to comments.Rand Paul Is the GOP's Early Presidential Front-Runner

While the establishment hopes for a governor to emerge, he is quietly putting together a formidable operation.
Republican strategists like to say the party's next nominee needs to hail from the GOP's gubernatorial ranks. It's a response to how unpopular Washington isparticularly the party's congressional wingand a reflection of the party's strength in holding a majority of governorships. But another reason for the gubernatorial focus is to sidestep the one formidable candidate that gives the establishment heartburn: Sen. Rand Paul.

Standby for GOP to start shooting arrows in his back.
Is the media again picking targets.
Well, I see they’re trying to promote an Amnesty advocate as the “alternative” to a Governor. They are SO predictable.
In their minds, ANYONE but Ted Cruz.
Wrong. It is Rick Santorum.
He won Iowa in 2012 while getting severely outspent. I suspect he wins again in 2016.
He was 3 in NH in 2012 to Romney and Huntsman. I suspect he gets 2nd this time.
With Gingrich out, I suspect he will win SC.
Then it will be a two man race in Florida.
But he clearly has an easier road than anybody else unless Romney reconsiders and runs again or if Jeb Bush runs who would probably win NH and FL.
Who is the National Journal?
We need a lookup scorecard to see when we are dealing with libtard press
The GOP will use Liberal/Progressive moderators to minimize anyone not a moderate like Romney, McCain or Bob Dole. Don’t expect any exciting GOP candidates ever again.
When did you start writing satire?
Romney truly embodies the GOP principles.
Gay Marriage by his Choice.
RomneyCARE/ObamaCARE by his Choice.
Criminal illegals everywhere
and not an American job in sight.
Lying, lying, lying, lying.
Romney should be the GOP candidate in 2016.
I think the National Journal may have this one right. Rand Paul might be the perfect flunkie for the RINO Party.
As of now, Republicans could do a lot worse than picking Paul. But why pick Paul? Walker, Perry and especially Cruz are so much better.
I would happily vote for Rand.
You are honestly pushing ole frothy!?!
Yeah, whatever happened to Limited Government?
Their answer to Obamacare is to replace it with some other form of Socialistic government controlled healthcare. It's not to give us back our freedoms to do business with whomever we will (and to use insurance as we like).
Gee....I don’t know. What, exactly, does the GOP stand for?
Give Obama Power? Garden of Poop? Inquiring minds want to know....
My sense is rand paul is our best chance. There are lots of kids fhat want to vote “libertarian” , even though they do not even know what it means. I think he will get lots of votes from low info voters that cruz will never get. I personally would love to see cruz, but I think rand paul is the only guy that gets non republicans
OMgoodness - oh yeah Santorum, lets get excited.
