Rand Paul on Re-energizing the Conservative Movement: "Young People Want Us to Stand on Principle'
Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was the winner of this year’s CPAC straw poll. Tonight on Hannity, Sean asked the senator if he’ll run for president in 2016. He answered, “I can tell you it was invigorating. […] There probably was 2,000 young kids in the audience standing and chanting. If you want to find some energy for the conservative movement, you see it there at CPAC.
Paul credited his popularity among
those on the left and the right to principles like the right to trial by jury and the right to be innocent until proven guilty. “Our young people want us to stand for something. They want us to really stand on principle and I think that’s why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll.”
