Each speaker had only 10 minutes to impress the crowd at the Iowa GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner over the weekend. What did Sen. Rand Paul do? He, of course, went in a different direction from everyone else.
“In contrast to his competitors who stuck to standard GOP themes,” says Eli Stokols of Politico, “Rand Paul delivered a presentation at the Lincoln Day Dinner on Saturday night that emphasized three issues where he stands far apart from the rest of the field: civil liberties, criminal justice reform and his anti-interventionist foreign policy stance. The self-described ‘libertarianish’ Kentucky senator is on an island on all of those issues; his focus on them in the 10 minutes he was allotted on stage suggested that’s just how he likes it.
Why not? After all, Paul needs to pop out, not blend in, from all the other candidates fighting for the precious Republican nomination. Watch his speech from the Iowa Republican Party dinner below. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook for more updates.
