What Rand Paul has done is how you win elections. This type of gumption is what will energize the base and bring out the small percentage of the Republican base who stayed home during the 2012 election. Conservatives are looking for a fighter. And they are looking for someone who can back a person like Barack Obama down. Senator Rand Paul showed us he is that kind of man. As you in the RNC think about who you will throw all your resources into backing for 2016, and Jeb Bush pops into your heads, ask yourself if he would have been able to do what Rand Paul did. And Karl Rove I hope you are listening to this too. Sorry for the shortness of this diary, but what more can I say?
