Rand Paul Begins Tour of Early Primary States
Sen. Rand Paul, R. Ky., opened his presidential exploration tour Friday with a series of speaking engagements in Iowa.
Paul will then address a party banquet in New Hampshire and round out May with a speech at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in California. He returns to Iowa in June, then heads to a South Carolina fundraiser.
March’s CPAC Presidential Straw Poll has Paul winning the GOP nomination with 25 percent of the vote, just two points ahead of the next candidate, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla. Last month’s Public Policy Polling numbers also show Paul beating Rubio with a similar margin.
