That is again leading to speculation that Sen. Paul will endorse Sen. Alexanders re-election bid, something he came short of doing in a previous joint media appearance to demonstrate their solidarity with fishermen facing Corp of Engineer restrictions that would keep them from fishing near dams. Given the pair's voting records, which show wide policy fissures, if Sen. Paul does endorse Alexander, it will invite reasonable suspicion that he cares more about Lamars ability to help him in his expected 2016 presidential run than he does about the biggest issues facing the country.
I have culled, from the Heritage Action Scorecard, a sample list of major differences between Senators Paul and Alexander last year, when Paul earned a score of 96% from Heritage Action, and Lamar received a score of 49%.
Vote after vote, on comprehensive immigration reform, taxing Internet sales, the Farm (mostly Food Stamp) bill, the deal to reopen the government, and rules weakening the minority in the Senate, Sen. Alexander voted the opposite of Sen. Paul.

Second quarter for fundraising closes today. Joe Carr needs to show a good bump in his ability to rally the grass roots.
Lamar! is dug in deep. It will take a great effort to unseat him. Here's a positive way to punish the GOP for Mississippi.
“Rand Paul to appear in Nashville with Lamar”
Birds of a feather.........don’t trust weasels.
Rand Paul has thrown away his future.
He is now just another establishment RINO.
It’s amazing. Paul has to hold some sort of record on going from claiming to be conservative to actually being a RINO. The promises of a GOP-E future and their power hold on the party must have caused his to put that before what he once seemed to believe in. He’s had lots of chances to stand tall with conservatives and took the RINO way out instead. Major Disappointment.
Rand Paul is a Libtardian, NOT a conservative!
This photo shows the Paul effort is not really new. Senators protect each other's flanks and protect common interests. The photo above depicts just such action. Incumbents have political debts to pay that must be honored.
That is a huge benefit to incumbents simply not available to the challengers.
It may not be right or fair, but it is
Paul is a RINO as far as I’m concerned just like lamar. If Carr hasn’t got the balls to go after the position full tilt, then he needs to get out. I’m tired of backing losers who sound good, no carry through. That means he has to come out of his comfort zone in Middle & East TN and get his butt into West TN ASAP. No signs out. In Atoka area, or Millington. There should be.
——No signs out. ——
There you have it. You assume there are signs elsewhere. There are none in my upper east Tennessee area either.
The reason I assume is lack of money.
(there are not very many Lamar signs either)
Your daily dose of Paul
Have you been in touch with either the Carr campaign or the Beat Lamar pac?
I guess there are times when the apple does drop far from the tree, Rand is no Ron, that’s for sure, Dr. Paul may have been nutty at times, but he was consistent and never up for sale, he must look at Rand and wonder who his father is.
How about honoring us the voters for once?
I know, I know but there are none on Moreland Drive, among the sea of campaign signs before and after Sullivan South High School. Ditto other designated campaign sign sea areas.
And then there is a Mr Flinn...... I don’t know who he is but he keeps popping up on TV ads, more than Lamar and certainly more than Joe.
You make a strong point but remember if you will that politics is the art of the possible.
Influence on the Senate floor is magnified by negotiation among like minded. The art is to maintain favor on the floor while developing enough favor among voters to stay elected.
I don’t condone the process, but merely make the analysis.
Flinn has not reported any money raised or spent.
He’s slowly hanging himself out to dry. Keep it up and he will be just like his dad. Irrelevant to those that elected him.
Ru Paul is a sellout.
Like and bump.
Alexander and Paul... The RINO Brothers.
He’s appearing with Lamar?
...so much for sticking with principles.
I am voting for Carr!
Rand Paul has made the same list that I placed Rubio, Christie etc on.
I store this list in my round filing cabinet on the floor.
I’m praying for you CC
Carr campaign, all I get he’s been there a few times, big donor only. No open public meetings. He has family, he travels x miles per week. Well he’d best get his BUTT in gear and hit Shelby CO openly in person. Social media will only get you so far. You ask any one in Shelby and they say CARR WHO? Ny now his name should be WELL KNOWN!
NO MORE MONEY FOR LOSERS! I am old, I am sick, and I can’t do what I did 8 yrs ago. And my SS only goes so far, and I sure as heck am not dipping in to what little savings I still have for a LOSER not willing to sacrifice a little family time if he wants the Darn job!
I hear you. I hate to say it, but the Carr campaign has the feel of Amateur Hour about it.
