The most vocal Senate critic of President Barack Obama’s illegal NSA wiretapping, conservative Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), has just dropped out of the GOP race.
This decision follows a poor performance in the Iowa Caucus.
He will now focus on his Senate campaign, where patriots need him to continue his fight for liberty. This is BIG NEWS:
Rand Paul will drop out of the race for president, three sources close to the campaign told POLITICO.
Paul, a freshman Kentucky senator and the son of former Texas Rep. Ron Paul, has a large libertarian following but failed to gain traction in the presidential race. He now faces a race for reelection to the Senate.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) announced Wednesday that he is suspending his presidential campaign, bringing an end to a bid that began with aspirations of expanding the libertarian base that his father, Ron Paul, built into a powerful national coalition.
But the low-key, philosopher-quoting Kentucky senator struggled in a year dominated by hard-line outsiders such as Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump to get attention, and his non-interventionist views on foreign policy were not embraced by Republicans as terror and unrest raged abroad.
Thanks again to the people of Iowa. It was great getting to meet you & I am especially grateful for the enthusiasm of students! Fight on!

Rand Paul is desperately needed in the Senate. Kentucky is very lucky to have him.

I have my policy differences with Rand Paul, but he ran a good campaign. Whoever emerges needs to speak to his core voter for unity/victory.
