It’s not the first time that Ellison has used his influence and dollars to help Republican causes. As Buzzfeed reports, “he gave $3 million to Restore Our Future, a super PAC that supported Mitt Romney’s bid for president”. It seems that Ellison has learnt from this investment, though, and even as the former Massachusetts Governor continues his dance around the question of a 2016 presidential run, Ellison is banking on Senator Paul and his message.
Ellison has good reason to back Paul whose message of liberty and freedom is breaking through in over-regulated, over-taxed, and over-governed California. The California for Rand Paul Facebook page continues to attract new fans, the state is rich in college students who are integral to driving Paul’s popularity, and a recent Public Policy Polling survey has every likely GOP contender for 2016 going down to likely Democrat opponent Hillary Clinton save one.
You guessed it: Senator Rand Paul.
All signs suggest that, if California is going to be in play in 2016, it is only candidate Rand Paul who will be able to deliver the state for the GOP. With Ellison lining up party donors and positioning his considerable financial resources behind the Kentucky Senator, early signs are promising that a change is in the wind, not only in traditional Red States but also way out West.
Larry Ellison’s interest coupled with Senator Paul’s recent announcement of an expansion in his California operations and the opening of a new San Francisco office suggests something very important: the Golden State is up for grabs. With positive polling and a message that resonates nationally, it’s little surprise that Ellison is banking on the energetic Kentucky Senator to deliver real results in California. Will Rand Paul deliver California for the GOP? Have your say below!
